Side light peaks! (One for Roy)

Postby MikeNash » Mon Sep 26, 2016 10:24 am

What ho, chums!

Saw this on a Moggy pickup at yesterday's Andover Festival of Motoring and thought of Roy![frame]Image[/frame]
Sweet, isn't it! The pickup had the usual headlamp peaks but I've never seen them on sidelights. They made a full set. I expect there'll be a rush now to find the supplier.
Regards,. MikeN.
Morris Minor, the car of the future. One day they will all look like this!

I'll not show those to my wife...she'd find some on the web. No amount of logic will dissuade her..

These are possibly early VW Beetle rear lamp peaks - Available for around £17.00 from Air Cooled Accessories. Nice idea! :wink:

Legally they are classed as a sharp and or protruding object from bodywork under the construction and use regulations of the road traffic act. Therefore an offence to be used on a motor vehicle, also covered by MoT regs as bodywork having sharp and or protruding objects.

Each and everyone to there own taste bloody awful in my opinion

Only counts if from damage or corrosion. Well mot wise anyway. Crazy rules.

They used to do peaks like that on series 1 land rovers where the sidelights were on the bulkheads. Tho it didn't help stop the light reflecting from the wing mirrors (if fitted) back into the drivers face at night.

Has anyone given thought to an award category we can name after Roy at the National?
Further investigations uncovered it was an inside job!!

The club should definitely commemorate his contribution properly - his help and advice to countless people (no matter how he sometimes delivered the message :) ) absolutely demonstrated the club's ethos.

That's a shame, although he did tell me that he wasn't a member.
