I couldn't say for sure as I never checked them properly. I just lined them up with the top of a small wall 50ft away to get a rough beam height the same as my mondeo would be.

The light is very white and well on par with my older Cibie Oscars but significantly brighter.

I have a small pair of spot lamps 5inch? I dont need for sale.

Stainless steel body so no fears about rusty pitting, just bling to last a life time. With h1 high power bulbs.

Originally for mini coopers.

Got a pair of blacked out style led headlights. Standard 7 inch units for jeep wranglers, landy defenders, buggies 😉

Built in halo for drl or side lights in white or orange.

Orange can also be used to act as indicator when the headlights are on.

I have cobra monaco's. Very comfy and a slim profile so dont take up much room in the car.

Looking mean!

A bit of leeway for staying would be great for me and Roisin. We are looking to do swannage this year and a bit down lands end, so a few days as base camp would be awesome for arriving early after going the length of the country.

The facilities are a little tired but still better than the showers many of us paid for in IBW 17

Compared to Stoneleigh?

IBW is on the last week before my end of year exams. So I dont think me and Roisin will be going  :'( :'( Will see closer to the time as my exam block is 3 weeks long after the module ends... so depending on the date of my exams I might have an extra 3 weeks if the exam is held on the last day of the exam block.... but I wont know until really close to the time.

I think we will only be able to do Stoneleigh and we are pinning to do Swannage, with a tour down to lands end and Lizard  8) 8)

Wheels look great. Now stop fussing about shields for rain, and such like, and get some miles in before the season ends!

Will do!  8) 8) 8) 8)

My carb splash protectors are perspex and clip onto my rear cage. I found I also needed lorry mudguard brushes to get a good enough seal to stop water getting in during the annual monsoon

Don't see why you have a problem, thought rain up there was solid

The last run up from IBW it was crazy, but I think the reason I was ok against everyone else having big carb trouble was my filters for the little 34ict's were suspended right above the engine on 90 hoses, pretty much where they would be if it was a single carb setup. So they'd be in no danger of water getting near them. These big 40 idf's however the filters are right next to the wheels, especially with the super short type 3 manifolds which are about half the length of type 1 manifolds... so any spray is going right in em.. Hopefully that wont happen now.  :-X :-X :-X
