I'm looking for a set of two PAR 56 lamp mounting bezels, similar to the one shown here:

These will be used to upgrade the headlamps on a small 45 ton switching locomotive. Here is an example of a similar install:

I believe this was/is common practice for converting these old reflector headlights to sealed beam lamps. We have a couple centercabs with similar conversions. A steel plate is used to blank out the headlight, and one of these flush mount bezels are used to hold the PAR lamp. The locomotive receiving the conversion lost it's reflectors long ago, and it just makes sense to do the upgrade at this time.

These bezels may be some type of truck or automotive part. I have been unsuccessful in my internet searches so far. Please let me know if you have a set to sell or trade! Advice, suggestions, or recommendations are also welcome.

Thank you,

Joe Nugent
