Hi Winnabbey - thanks. I actually think that the last set of lenses I bought probably came from Mini Kingdom. They are certainly marked as Lucas parts. I just presumed they were good quality knockoffs.

I have recently fitted a set of repro Mk1 tail light units to my rebuild ( '66 Aust. Mk1 used UK 3 screw item) from a reputable UK source.
When time came to test lighting circuit, every globe - front and rear - lit up.
Eventually found the 2 leads into the lower/red lense section that should have been red (for parkers) and green (for stop) were reversed and contacted the wrong terminal in the twin-filament globes.
It took me about 4 days to work out what went wrong. Since I had rebuilt the wiring loom, I assumed that I had made the mistake.....
The reproduction bits were very well made and they look the part. Don't assume red fits red etc.


I had this, mine came from Minispares.
Passed an mot before we clicked that stop and sidelight were the wrong way round!
