   Fitting The Lights.

    

Side Lamps 

All the Lights used must be E marked. We started with the side lamps These were chrome ones with a two hole fixing from Tony Stafford. We placed the lamps on the wings and made sure that one of the holes would be drilled right through the wing support bracket in our case it was the front one. We fitted one side, remembering to drill a third hole for the wiring,  then took the measurement from this one and repeated it on the other wing.

Head Lamps. 

I used the chrome ones, again from Tony. These took a wee while to position one of us holding the lamp in place the other checking the visual effect and checking the measurements in the back pages of the manual. The problem here was that the measurements suit the bowls supplied by JBA. but the chrome lights sit far to high so needed moving forward further down the wing.

Once we had one head lamp set up it was a simple matter of transferring the measurements on to the other wing. The lamps were then bolted to the wings using large strong spreading washers underneath to help support the lamps and protect the wing.

 

Rear Lamps and Flashers. 

There are two style of rear lamp mouldings from JBA.  We used the ones for the two separate lamps.   Firstly I cut two pieces of mild steel to fit inside each lamp moulding and drilled two holes in each. Then took them to work and my mate Tam welded two nuts on to the holes. I then bonded them to the mouldings two in each casing  . This enabled me to bolt the mouldings straight on to the wing.

The lamps used, once again from Tony, were the Hillman Imp style ( because I owned an Imp and loved it ) separate Stop/Tail on one lamp and a Flasher the other lamp.

The lamps were fitted to the mouldings and positioned on one wing using the measurements in the back pages of the manual. Then drilling the wing for the mounting holes and the cable holes.  Then copying the measurements from one wing to the other.

Front Flashers and Side Repeaters. 

For the front flashers I used two stainless round flashers from Europa. These were fitted on to the bumper mounting holes using two stainless L brackets I bought at a truck stop they are used for mounting CB aerials on to trucks and come in various sizes and designs.

The side repeaters we used came from Custom Fasteners and are lamps used on motor cycles. It was a simple case of drilling one hole in the CBU under the windscreen fixing bolts and fitting the lamp.

Other Lamps. 

I also fitted two rear fog lamps above the rear bumper using two L brackets the same as for the front. Plus two reversing lamps underneath the bumper.
