Acrylic Speedometer Lens

If you are looking for a round lens with convex face, try a clock repair parts shop.  Here's a link to glass ones of various sizes.  If the o.d. isn't exactly right, you can usually sand them down - carefully and with water for cooling.

Does the lens you are trying to replace look like this one?

With the explosion of technology, there are folks that can scan your old face and produce a beautiful replacement. There was an episode of Phantom Works where Dan at DRS in Norfolk, VA walked into a graphics shop and they produced a new face for a car he was restoring. The show has been discontinued; but you can contact Dan thru his website and I am sure he’ll put you on to his contact.
