replacement glass for ceiling fans


Anyone know of some companies that sell long replacement glass for the lights that are part of a ceiling fan? The big stores sell 2 1/4" fitter X 4" to 5" long, but the lengths are shorter then I want. I put some of the daylight cfl's in the fixtures and they stick out past the end of normal sized glass. I think 6 inch glass would do.

Most of the sites seem to sell the standard size, unless I'm overlooking some.

You mean a light fixture store or some other type store?

I've purchased light shades off of ebay.

You might also look around for different CFLs. It seems like everyday they are coming out with a different or more compact light.
