Hey Don, long time, no see
Don't know if they are related. The bulb can cause damage to the lens. Ever check out 70's Novas? The 74? through 79 series has 4 lights across. The outer 2 are the brake/signal lights. The lens mount from the outside while the bulb assembly comes from the inside of the trunk. Sort of like a sandwich. Often in the boneyard, you will see one of the outside lens damaged from heat.
Guess is the bulb went and took the lens with it. Too thin plastic.

Don's a true SS guy around here, but don't ask him about the snake part. Wrong BB for such questions. (Canadians brag anyway, but southern women don't line up.)

I don't know if this applies to you case or not, but I was looking at replacement sockets and it listed what bulbs would fit. There was a differance in the wattage of the bulbs. You could start there and make sure it has the right bulb. I know it sounds dumb, but just a place to start. Cal
