there are two bends to that style. The ones off a L model MACK and the ones off a B model Mack.The L model is a lot flatter than the B model.

hmmm well the red truck in this thread flat or damn near flat. because it looks like maybe the ones on the green truck are curved bottom, compared to the ones on the red truck?  is that what you are talking about?

Yes the light on the B have a curve in the light to fit a curved roof.     I think some of the earlier cabovers have the same light except they are made with no curve for flat roofs.      Depending on your truck if it has a flat roof or curved roof will help get the correct lights.

yeah i dont have any electronic forms of payment at all so i cant.  or i would have already years ago.  but i doubt amazon has vintage pitted metal ones,  i want old useable worn aged ratty ones.
