What reflectors do you have on your Bantam T3-C (if they look original only)
 
Would like to know manufactor and model numbers of Bezel.

Close up unedited pictures would be appreciated.
 
I have found early trailers with Arrow 217s with Grotelite 100 Reflectors so far.

I have 21351 that I am currently restoring. I will be posting the pictures soon but thought I would start here. The trailer had three reflectors on it - one in the center of the tailgate. I believe one of the reflectors is original as it is the only one that had the same layers of paint as the trailer.

Grote Model 100
Grotelite NO. 100



Hope this helps

Tom

More to add here. T3C #1431.

Both original reflectors marked "Stimsonite AGA No. 12A"




Both bezels marked "model 50'. Not sure of make yet, will have to wire brush later.

Based on where my trailer has been and who owned it, I believe my reflectors to be original (but can't be 100% sure). They are made by Do-Ray, Chicago - and the model (hard to see in top image) is "Tiger-ey  P100."

Does anyone know what color the various reflector bezels were new? Where they plain (plated) or painted - and if painted, what color?

I know this is an older thread, but has any definitive results been determined? My trailer came without reflectors, but has the mounting holes. Trying to decide what to look for/go with. We're these reflectors glass like the Arrow taillights or plastic?

If you look thru the Database on my website, I've documented them if the info was available/given to me
 but there are many blanks.
 
All of the 45s should have Arrow 217s with Grotelite 100 bezels (I believe these were used on the Military T3s as well so they probably had many in stock/on hand).
 
The 2xxxx sn range seems to have begun Grote 100 Reflectors
 
I think many just gave me the reflector model number which obscures the data rather than the bezel and reflector models as Grote made reflectors themselves with the same model 100 number
 
I'm deployed right now but when I get back I probably need to go thru each trailer I have pictures of and readdress the research to see if I can update anything in the database.
 
It would be nice to resurrect this Poll and see if more will chime in...
