Hmm, I like those covers over the rear wing openings. I've never seen one in real life. Are they just an Ozz thing?

That's a cool looking moggie there! :D
I think the spats (?) covering the rear wheels were available here as well, I seem to recall seeing an old advert for them somewhere (in an old mag :wink: ), though I too have yet to see them in the flesh.
What are those lights / chrome surrounds from? I believe I've seen the same on a (classic) VW Beetle before but who manufactures them?
Best wishes,
Mike.

They look like Riley 1.5 surrounds fitted to the original headlamps?

The surrounding rim possibly but the headlamps themselves have a chrome strip up the middle which splits at the top forming a 'Y' shape with what appears to be a black infill. I've seen them somewhere before but I can't place them.....

My eyesight isn't very sharp! I hadn't spotted that detail. I've no idea what that is - although it could be something added on/stuck on to the light rather than a different light itself?

I agree, it's probably a custom inner rim with a centre strip, like I say, I have seen it before, on a classic VW possibly.
Perhaps one of the Custom / Mod chaps knows what they are / where they are from?

Usually called cat's eyes, an after market add on and used on many rods and customs.
