+2 S130 Tail Light Lenses And Sills

PostPost by: Greg Foster » Tue Dec 14, 2004 12:31 am

Is there still a supply of the red and amber taillight lenses . Mine are a little ratty looking . Also is there a need for +2 sills . I was thinking of having a set fabricated and would look into a run of some if anyone is interested (could probably have them made cheaper hear than having them sent from UK).

Greg,
Have recently bought a set of red/orange/clear tail lamp lenses off the UK ebay site. They seem to come up regularly. In fact there is a set advertised at the moment. They do not have the clear reversing lens however, and are perported to be off an early S2. They don't look quite right to me, as the mounting screws are not in the same position as my S4 and the aspect ratio (lengthxbreadth) looks all wrong.

Those ones advertised are for the first few Elan +2 built . They are the Carrello type and not the Lucas ones as fitted as the main run. New lenses and bases are available from most UK suppliers . Bases are approx ?140 , and lenses ?35 both plus VAT + shipping .
Secondhand are available on ebay with the reverse light section .
Sill members are available new in mild steel or galinised steel . Price not on my brain at mo .

Greg,

Regarding the rear ligths, about six months ago I saw in the Holden Classis catelog new rear light for sale (about ?120 each lens). Not sure if they still have any but worth a look - <a href='http://www.holden.co.uk' target='_blank'>http://www.holden.co.uk</a>
