Re: Bodywork

Many thanks for the excellent advice! Do you fit the top half of the front cross member before the lower part? Do the holes for the engine mountings help lining up the chassis leg as they bolt right through?
Thanks

LED indicator bulbs

Hi
I have a 1968 4 door Moggy
I've just read a post about LED bulbs for semaphores, has anyone replaced their indicator bulbs with LED ones? Where can we get them and would you need to change the flasher unit? If so can someone provide a link?

Kind regards
