Se5a rear lenses please!

Post by MadMax » Tue Nov 20, 2018 6:24 pm

Managed to recover the rear lamp units so I just need a set of lenses now, the current ones are missing/broken by the po.

Anyone got any kicking around? the fixing hardware would be a bonus!

Hi Max
Just picked up on this (Bit busy just now ), I manufacture the sealing gaskets for this type of light unit and I also have a few sets of used lenses in stock.

I could get a set of lenses together if no one else has offered you them?.

Regards Mark

8) Look outside of the Scimitar box.Most parts fitted by Reliant were from other manufacturers. Back Lights Hillman Hunter. Aston Martin just to mention a few.

That’s SE5 - 5a ones are also Aston, but Jensen and TVR on top.

I did find an indicator one last night (whilst looking for something completely unrelated).

Hillman Hunter are the earlier SE5 lights, also Aston DBS.

As has been said before, they’re not “from other manufacturers” - Reliant commissioned Lucas to make the the later lights as a joint venture with Lotus. Jensen-Healey paid Reliant and Lotus to use them. Aston, Maserati and TVR used them later too.
