Main Cabin Portlights

Before interior finish can reach full velocity, the final portlights in the main cabin must be installed. The original  factory deadlights were custom by the factory, an odd size and are no longer available. We have been undecided how to proceed. Create our own? Have custom aluminum lights made by Diamond SeaGlaze?

Turns out a fellow W42 owner in the area had custom lights made by Newfound Metals, the same manufacturer of the other already installed smaller lights. He has provided me with a picture (posted with permission) of how they look.


We are very impressed with his installation and think the NFM lights look great and do the original factory deadlights justice on look and design. Plus they match the existing lights already installed and are opening ports.

I expect to be ordering a set of these lights very soon.
