Things are moving forward on the body side. Plasticman has been round and started working his magic. He's chopped the big bonnet and fitted some hinges. The front end is almost done and I have now been thinking about updating the rear a little by the use of LED tail lights.




I bought some ULO lights (as fitted to the latest Ultima) and have been playing around with positioning.

Looks to me that TVR got it about right with the S. You can't go plonking them on anywhere. It would make the rear look unbalanced. (p.s. these are Photoshop images, hence the poor alignment;) They also show the illuminated colour. They will be silver when I'm not braking or indicating!)

Any opinions???

The defusher manufactured and fitted by Willow sportscars on Jason's tuscan looks great and would look the business on yours, just be careful with the spoiler as I saw a hidious one on a blue tuscan at Gaydon on a car club meet, and it looked S _ IT.

Hi Mark,
Do you have any photos of the spoiler at Gaydon? I was going to fit a mounting that allows spoilers of different heights to be fitted.

Those are the SVC lighs which are separates that I don't think look quite as nice/well finished as the Ultima/ULO ones I've bought. The ULOs have more LEDs and a dome clear lens from edge to edge and only £270 for the 6!

Is the brake light the outer ring or the inner light? I have the svc ones and the outer ring is the normal light and then gets brighter when you brake. I'd be tempted to change to the ULO ones if the outer ring was the normal light and the inner light for brakes.

Correct but I didn't want three light units so I have stop and tail in the outer rings on both and indicators fog and reverse in the inner lights and I think the finish on the lights is good

can you do a pic of the lights paired horizontally rather than vertically?

For safety you could be really clever and turn the Tuscan badge into a smoked brake lights .....
Really like the look you've achieved but I'd be worried with the lights being so low.
