Refurbishing sport lamps?
#1
Hello everyone,

I searched around a bit and didn't find the answer I needed so I'll try posting it here.  I have a pair of over 40 year-old sport lamps that I'd like to refurbish.  My thoughts would be to take them apart, polish the lenses, and repaint the argent fronts and the white/cream housings.  Unfortunately I can't figure out the first step to get them apart.  

Any advise on how to get them apart?

Thanks Don for the information.  thumb    After looking them over I see they would be pretty tough to take apart without damaging something.  Looks like it's going to be some good cleaning, lens polishing, and paint touch-up!

Anyone have any tricks to clean the inside of the lens?  It's driving me crazy trying!
