Very nice Geraint - if you search for 'Lucas 6WL' you can also get the warning cluster with a chrome bezel. I bought one for a tenner or so, just for the chrome, but used my own cluster.

Cheers,

Mike.
thanks Mike, I was fortunate that the cluster I had was chrome covered with matt paint, all the LED bulbs have arrived so need to crack on with them now.

best wishes

Today, while trying to do an earth cable from the battery to the rear (on the street...), I was pulling myself up from beneath the car, pushing under the front bumper and in a hidden place found this ... the spare key of the former owner! Must have been there for at least a decade.

After the mumified weasel behind the door, this is my second best find in this car.
