Default Warbird taillight. '60's & '70's parts Guru's, need some info please

I'm trying to find some info on an aftermarket parts maker from the late '60's and early 70's.
I checked the markings on that Warbird taillight I just got and the lens is marked:
J-R COMPONENT PARTS
MPLS -1973- MINN
Didn't find any thing on line so I guess they went under years back.
yea, I figured out they were in Minneapolis, MN
Interested in what else they made.

I have 3 of those lenses, I just gotta get around to machining out some housings... (I have the hawk repops). just never have the time.. !

if one of you fuckers has a CNC or is good with a mill and wants to pop a couple out, I'll trade one of the lenses, etc.....
