Default High-Rise Canopy -- Toolbox to Sell/Trade

Losing patience with Craigslist. Thanks for reading:

Looking for a high-rise canopy in bright red or dark grey for my '94 short bed, and I'd like to keep it below $400 or so.

If anyone can suggest a place that sells used canopies anywhere between Seattle/Tacoma and Tri Cities, I'm willing to travel and appreciate any advice.

I have a toolbox I'd be willing to trade or add to the deal for higher priced canopies.

Also: I haven't had a chance to give it an honest look, but I'm looking for replacement lenses for my fog lights. So far I have only found full replacement kits, but my bulbs and the housing is fine, just need two lenses.

Again, any suggestions would be appreciated.

I live in the tri-cities and have a high rise canopy for sale for $400 (this sounds to perfect) the catch is it's dark Forrest green, but thought you might like to know seeing as it fits 90% of your description and painting it is always an option.

Thanks for letting me know! I've actually started to look into effective ways to paint a canopy myself so I'm not limited by color choice anymore.

Over the next week or so I will have a better idea of what approach I'll take next, and I'm in the TCs fairly often, so if I can find a way to paint over without ruining anything I would definitely be interested in checking out your canopy.

Thanks again

Had broken lens on one of my fog lamps. Held mine together for the longest time, with clear packing tape! Unfortunately, to replace the lenses, you have to replace the entire
lamp assembly. That's what I was told, when I looked into getting just the lenses.
About $150 later, through Autozone, I had new lamps.

Only problem right now, is my passenger side lamp has mjoisture/water in it!!
Good luck!

That's funny you mentioned packing tape, I was thinking about just cutting some plexiglass and setting it with epoxy but I like your way better.

For me, it worked. Held a broken out section in place for a year or more!
It stayed that way until I had no choice but to replace the entire lamp.
During that time, I removed old tape and retaped, maybe twice in a year or more!
Worked great for me, with no noticeable change in light.
Quick and cheap!!
