Sidelight/Indicator Units

Just thought I'd share some details regarding the so called "poor quality" sidelight/indicator units currently available - I would guess that they are made on the original (and very tired) tooling but that for reasons of economy the manufacture has done away with several of the parts which went into...

Old SE6 Windscreen Rubber

I was always under the impression that it was a standard profile section, I've fitted similar on boats using a flat section plastic "chrome" insert, much harder to get round tight corners than the teardrop section one!

SE5a bump stops

The later type have a single stud protruding from the back which in turn bolts onto an L shaped bracket retained to the chassis by a single bolt on the inside face of the chassis rail, You should be able to make some adapter plates whic...

I'll try to grab some photos this weekend as they're at a lockup garage a few miles away. Photos showing them when they were on the car just to make sure they are the type your looking for: http://www.industrialbritain.co.uk/forumstuff/ss1/15.jpg http://www.industrialbritain.co.uk/forumstuff/ss1/17....
