LHD headlights anyone?

Post by paulwitchard » Sat Mar 10, 2007 6:03 pm

Have found a suitable car through the club website so now looking for a pair of LHD headlights to fit if anyone has got a pair gathering dust that they would like to turn into cash.

The only thing I cook is the engine in the TD with alarming regularity! :lol:

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Paul, when I got my car through the CT in France I got my local 'Toutes Marques' garage to get them and fit them for me.....worked out at around £30 incl labour. There are literally hundreds of scrap BX's out there all with most parts to fit. You might find that they'll pass it without the mod as my mate out there had his Leyland Sherpa van passed with the tape deflectors on it......'but only for this first year m'sieur ok?'

I asked in case someone had some that they thought they would never get rid of! - and we're a bit busy at the moment and its easier to get the post lady to bring them than trawl through the local scrappies.
Our local CT man seems quite fussy about headlights - he failed my Relay van because I had not got them on - the local factors had sent lights for a Jumpy rather than a Jumper, and also failed the wife's Renault 4 because the headlights were rusty despite the fact that there were 2 holes in the chassis near the rear suspension mountings that you could put your fist through!
