  • help saving sc430 - jb welded lens retainer and identify lens

    I took apart my retros because quality was poor and I want to redo them.
    Can these be salvaged? There is jb weld under the lens retainers. If I cut the retainer, are there replacement retainers available?
    Also, what lens are these? the little bump makes me this tsx-r clear lens. The lens are loose because lens spacer fell out.

    If i sold them as is, are they worth anything?

    Isn't the JB weld brittle enough to break in small pieces if you chisel it out?

      yea, i've been trying to remove all the jb weld. so much even split the projectors because I didnt know that was what's holding them together.
      The area between lens retainer is small so it'll take forever if I can fit any tools in it.

        probably some localized heating would help the proccess...

          I was able to completely dissemble these a while back without force.
          I didn't know the bowl/reflector were only held together by jb weld, so I removed too much jb weld on one of them.
          The lens i think were tsx-r and had cardboard spacers.

          Is there a market for these? just trying to get rid of them since I lost interest in reusing them.
