While I am waiting for the Speedwell car short motor to re apear, I have been working on a little side project.

I have however reached a bit of an en passe & am interested in opinions.

When using a Benelite Grille with twin 5.75 Lucas lamps, what do you prefer?

Over riders or no over riders.

The car in question is a Deluxe, so have no corner bars.

Personally I'd go with the overriders and Benelite grille with incorporated spotlamps.

I always associate over riders without corner bars with the Mk2, so I'd say without (if no corner bars fitted)

But: your car, your choice.

No over riders - less to wash.

Ask me 50 years ago when I started this trip. Back then I couldn't wait to get them off the car. Now I look forward to one of my cars having them again. How long would it take to change back if you tire of them? I think of them as classic and not that many cars came with them. Steve (CTR)
