Hi All,
Can anyone help me to identify this 1950's headlamp rim Please ?
I have one but need a second and there are no identification marks on the rim.
Thanks Trevor

Trevor,

It looks similar to a Rover P5 headlight rim - but they are chromed.

Thank you
Now I have some better pictures and have dug to one I have out of the loft and they are chromed, so you are probably correct.
Thank you for taking the time.
Kind regaards Trevor
