    Anyone know if ther is there any way to tell of a set of lenses are new reproductions?

    I've recently managed to find a set of rear lights that look really clean. I'm wondering if they are new lenses, as they have new screws holding them on.

    They came from a car that had been used for filming, and the studio had done a lot of work cleaning the cars up, and I figured they could have just bought new lenses rather then cleaning up old ones.

    Probably new ones. I can't see a studio "restoring" something. They don't have the time for something like that.
