Interesting rear light moulding on ebay

Postby frog » Mon 12.02.2018, 17:28

Hi,

See: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/312065136607?ul_noapp=true

don't know if it has been mentioned before, but I though I'd flag this one up as it is likely there will be more available.

Margaret 65 ..

He had 2 of them . 1 has now been bought by BritishSteel on here.
seems another interesting take on our rear ends.

Is that one of Phil's ( surfboardfiller)? He made one of the early full rear panels.

Nope . Phil's are 125mm these ones are 120mm light fittings.

Looks to me like you'll need rear side-repeaters if you fit those... :smt102

Chris, I had studied these photos a week or so ago, but maybe you know the answer as you made them - is there a way to provide number plate illumination without fitting a unit which protrudes from the panel (and in my opinion, would spoil the look of it)....

...... The only thought I had was something on the underside of the spoiler pointing downwards??????
Dave

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

go on - click this link - you know you want to!

Personally, I'd much prefer my rear registration to be on the hard to see side rather than illuminated like the Blackpool illuminations ;-) :burnout:

Hi Clemo, yes they were designed to fit the Elise S2 rear lights both the standard and later led ones, I think the cut outs are 115mm -120mm I don't have the Elan here to measure them though.
Hi Dapinky, this type of panel was designed with the TVR backlit number plates in mind, so all I did was have a couple of bulb holders mounted behind the plate. I later changed the design to have a cut out for the number plate which was lit from above by a couple of leds. Which you can hopefully see from the only picture I have to hand atm.
I can't believe quite how long ago I made the mould for these!!

Cheers
Chris

Hi Chris
your number plate recess area looks bigger than the one on ebay or is that just the angle .
The guy who is selling them has 2 for sale and has the moulds for them to fit 120mm lights .Did you sell the moulds on as well ?

That one looks much better than the ebay one. much neater finish around the number plate. :D

I messaged him a couple of weeks ago about it and he said it was one that he had made.

" DONT KNOW A CHRIS P, I MADE THE MOULD FOR THESE , THEY ARE A SINGLE FULL BACK PANEL "

Yours are much nicer Chris :-D

Yes i agree Wayne .
I would very much like to get my hands on one of those before my car goes in for final paint detailing ...

Ive asked MattD but nothing there .
LGM was a different mould to fit Fed.

Anyone have any ideas?
