the one on my 59 has a yellowish tint around the edges. that might be cause its 60 years old, I don't know.
I have bought an item from this seller and I get a kick that his parts say "last one". after I bought the item he still had the part listed as last one lol.

All two light dash raised dome lenses are red, some do have a yellow hued border.

Tried super glue and it was very fragile and cracked in the same spot. Cleaned with alcohol and used clear 2 part epoxy. Installed with a couple dabs of silicone and the light shield. Have to be a foot away to notice the crack, if you look for it. A successful save! Hope the vibration doesn't hurt it.

Nice, that the fixed worked.
Empirically, the crack will resurface, or at least they have for me.
