    Ouch. That's quite dear. My existing lamps are wipac quadoptics and appear to be cloudy on the inside of the glass. This seems not uncommon but I wonder if there is any way they can be cleaned up inside. I'm not sure what causes this issue as the lenses are glass, not plastic. I'm loath to spend a lot of cash on bulbs and not see a gain but spending the best part of £200 seems excessive for bulbs and lamps or am I living in the past? Andy

    I found these on Amazon but they say does not fit a TR4. Also I am not sure if the price is for one lamp or a pair https://www.amazon.co.uk/Valeo-082441-Front-Headlights/dp/B00CJO4XQM/ref=au_as_r?_encoding=UTF8&n=248877031&newVehicle=1&s=automotive&selectVehicleSource=vehicle attributes&submodelId=6972 Andy

    Thanks Bob I saw the ones on eBay and have made enquiries as they looked a little cloudy (not unlike mine) Andy

    Would these be the right ones? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Valeo-082440-Front-Headlights/dp/B008DQV88Q. Also, do I need relays when using LEDs? I've noticed that the led bulbs in my sitting room seem to cast less shadows than the previous standard bulbs so I wonder if they would be better than the H4 halogen bulbs in the P700s or am I just being a cheapskate? I like the look of the tripods on an early 60s car, I must admit Andy

    Thanks Bob I seem to recall you saying that about the P700s elsewhere but couldn't find it. The price is very attractive at around £45 per pair but I don't want to waste my money. I assume you tried adjusting them lower. Can't seem to find the Cibie's online but maybe I'm looking for the wrong ones

    I wonder if anyone has had experience of running with these LED bulbs https://www.classiccarleds.co.uk/collections/12-volt-collection/products/latest-led-headlights-p45t. I am contemplating buying new P700 (repro) headlamp units to replace my existing headlamps as the glass has gone a bit opaque. I am running on a dynamo which I would like to keep and I assume that relays would not be necessary for led's. However I am no auto electrician and don't really want to mess with the wiring. Andy
  7. Thanks Alan. I will proceed with care
  8. Its an Inverness registration so local
  9. I spotted this pic of TR2 HST 122 on 'Golden age of Great British Petrol Stations' page. The car is on the DVLA site so I hope this pic can be united with the owner. It was taken in 1955 in Inverness area. Andy
  10. I'm intending using 165/80/15 tyres (close to original size) instead of the 175/65/15 tyres that are currently on. The 165's are 1.4" taller than mine and 10mm narrower Andy
  11. I don't think I'll be doing any competing! I think the suspension is pretty well sorted now thanks to the Cumbria Group. I won't be 100% sure until I fit taller skinnier tyres which should be available in the New Year. They're classed as summer tyres and are thin on the ground at the moment (that wasn't meant as a pun!) Andy
  12. Really annoyed that I missed this run but it sounds like I made the right decision with dodgy wipers. The weather contradicted the forecast for most of the day and I was feeling very frustrated Andy
  13. I wouldn't know where to begin. You engineer johnnies are so clever! Andy
