Interior Front Overhead Dome Light Lens

Searched here and googled possible sources, but I can't seem to find the cloudy white dome light lens for the front overhead light housing.

BJ's is backordered with no ETA on availability. I'd heard RVs may have come with the same type but site searches showed nothing even similar, let alone an exact match.

https://www.bjsoffroad.com/Dome-Ligh...991_p_972.html

I'd seen one result here about this one being a potential match, but I don't like the see-through look on it.

https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-GM-Le.../dp/B00TABCOX6

Any one else have one or a source they know matches perfectly?

I think my 1979 silver anniversary trans am has a similar light
I will go back and check soon.

and I may have an extra
just so unorganized mite take a while to find.

I think it is a lamp used by GM on several models.

stay tuned

UPDATE:
looks the same
although I looked in one garage at the 79 trans am and a 1987 SS one Carlo hard top has same dome light
Then walked into main shop and looked at the 88 wagoneer..I could have missed a detail or two,....

( the one that is chrome, has two spot lamps for reading and one center dome with milky white lens )
I know GW's also had a square/rect. lamp in rear cargo area that is different.

Will do. The GM lenses I've seen thus far look slightly different, wider at the bases, and not sure the tabs are the correct width (though I could shave them down if needed).

Funny thing is I have like four of the bases and chrome housings from salvage yards to piece together one nice unit soon, but completely forgot about that lens.

Here's one that looks close, but I'm not buying unless I know it'll fit properly:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/CHEVY-CAPRI...AOSwvjtcmZV G

It's damn difficult to tell since I don't have one in front of me (my waggy was of course barren), nor does the BJ's example show all the angles.

Does someone have one handy they could take some pics of different angles and maybe give me some measurements?

Here's supposedly a Ford version, which might be the same as GM, I can't really tell:

Try one of these as Ford had a very similar light.
