Hey Richard,
I was just sitting here wondering, if you can't find one with the red ring on it, what about making one? That is probably just a piece of plex-glass that has been painted white and had a red ring added to it!
Or you may want to send Carl Heller (partsetal) a PM! He has several old Birds and may have the part you are looking for!
Keep us posted!

I think making one is a good posibility.
The only thing is it has to be pretty thin to not rub on the piece with the letters on it.
Just putting it back with the red piece left out will be an improvement.

Hey Richard,
I know Home Depot sells .093 plexiglas! You may be able to find a local glass shop that has some very small pieces or cut-offs they would give you to play with!
Making this is nothing a little time and a little patience could not accomplish. A little cutting and a little grinding and then a matter of making tape circle then painting
Keep us posted!
This is what I like about these guys that restore these old cars, where there is a will there is a way! If not our members will make the parts!
