  11. No Stuart surely not, Moss told me that I was the first to question the fit and that no one else had complained.........
  12. Hi Brian, Are your bumper irons originals or repros. I have a set of repros and have the same problem as you on my 1957 TR3, I've been trying to locate a set of originals to check my copies but not found any yet. Malcolm
  13. Staffordshire vehicle components, who sell PL700's at £70 each (+VAT) offer a sidelight option with theirs for an extra £10, but say that they take a little longer as they have to drill the hole and fit the bulb holder and grommet so drilling must be possible on their version
