What am I doing wrong or is it just not possible?
I bought 2 glass bodied globes at IG and the lenses had some minor damage and I wanted to put them into Capco bodies and sell them at the local car sale in order to recoup a portion of the cost. I have some nice NOS lenses that I put into the glass bodies.
When I tried to fit the thicker lenses into the capco body, I was straining so hard, I feared i would break the lens! The glass is thicker but I was always under the impression that they could somehow be installed in the plastic body?? I've always heard that gill lenses can be installed in a capco body by removing the alignment tab, and they would be the thicker lenses, so what gives?? If it can be done, what kind of modification do I need to make?
