I think you have done a super job of having a rare component re manufactured.

My car never had them, otherwIse I would buy them in a flash.

It's people like you putting the effort in that keeps our cars on the road.

Great effort.

Thank you kind Sir. Lets just hope I sell enough to break even!

I'm sure your car would look great with them on! Hint hint!

I'd forgotten and then temporarily mislaid them but I also have the original style brass dome headed screws.

With a pair of repro lenses £4 for 4 and no additional postage as they weigh nothing or £5 for 4 without plus p&p

Received the lenses from Steve in perfect order and super fast. They are superb. I certainly wouldn't be able to say they were a reproduction if I didn't know it, except for the fact that they are brand new. My car came with the squarer modern replacements when I bought it, so these will fit so much better (as soon as I can recommission the old bases).

Thank you Steve!

Hi Barry, I'm amazed you've received them in the US already that was pretty quick with a weekend in the mix too. I'm pleased that you're pleased.

Cheers
Steve

My S4 had the side repeaters removed and the holes filled prior to its repaint, it was one of my minor changes to make the car a bit different, but I think I should have kept them as I quite like the Dalek style image that you get when you see an Elan head on. No doubt SMS have them in a drawer awaiting a big sale when they retire along with all the other stuff they told me and other customers that they threw away :roll:

Steve,
Please set a pair of lenses aside for me and I will keep hold of them whilst I look for a pair of bezels. If I don't use them on my S4 they will be used on my next project which will be .... Shock.....Hororr! A standard car rebuilt to factory specification........

Well done for going to all the trouble of making these, I can see from the messages posted here that they are spot on and that everyone is pleased with them.

Regards

Alan
Kindest regards

Dear Steve,

The Sparto lenses arrived safely.

I am delighted with them, I can't tell them apart from the originals.

Now you wouldn't have a set of rubber gaskets for the bases would you?

Many thanks!!!! :D

Here's an offer for you International buyers. If anyone wants to try and gather a few orders together in their country I am happy to cooperate in sending a single package to save on International postage. The lenses are small and weigh virtually nothing so it's likely a multiple order will cost the same to post as just a pair. Obviously the redistribution at your end would be down to you.

Let me know.

Cheers
Steve

Steve,

I received mine yesterday, but you seem to have made a mistake -----

Have you sent me your originals, by mistake.

These can't be copies (can they?)

If so, you've saved me £oads !!

Thanks,

Regards,

Phil.
