Default Where can I get a tiny green bulb condom?

I have three VDO gauges and one of them didn't have a green bulb condom in it (unlike the other two). Does anyone know where I could order one?

Thanks!

I purchased some 0.2" bulb covers from www.partsexpress.com. They are actually deeper emerald than the stock green, but you can trim the condom so that it is short, thus blending in some yellow light. It's not too bad. I haven't found another place that sells the 0.2" size.

I offered these for sale a while back but I still have a few. If you want one, you can Paypal me $1 or send $0.25 and a SASE. PM me.

As far as removing the gauge from the stock rubber cup, you just have to be patient - it's rubber so you can push the lip back. Once you have the lip pushed back, you can use your fingertip to gently pull the gauge out. Work around the lip, bit by bit. If you don't have the finger-power, you can use a covered screw-driver to gently pry it out.

The 0.2" condoms that I purchased fit the Lamco bulb just fine.

You don't have to yank any wiring (the bulbs twists out of the back of the unit), but getting the gauge out of the cup can be trying.
