Has anybody fitted the Chim headlight pods to a S, I saw there was a Lupo pod conversion as well.

doesn't the Chimp use larger component headlights and not 7" ?

also may be best to talk to 'sports car racers'

I don't know Mick, just watched a video on You Tube, some place in Halifax, I could go and have a look I guess.

the Chimp headlight cowl could probably work as the shape of the body in front of the headlight is similar to the S

I looked into this years ago when I had my S.

I actually purchased a set of cowls but never got round to fitting them. I then sold them on to another PHer (a guy called Kieran I think)

I’ll have a dig about and see if I can find the photos

Found a photo on the car they were on originally.

The yellow bit replaces the silver ring, and I was looking at Perspex covers, but never got round to it. You had to drill a hole into the fibreglass and secure them from beneath.

The pod looks longer than the S and the S is a sharp nose as the Chim has a rounder nose, might not fit but liked the look of the covers.

I love the look of the later chim covers.. surly a man of your tallents (ive seen your spoiler!!) could make them fit or were you worried that to keep the cover as per the chim it would spoil the lines of the S?

Do it smile

I have a set on order so I will see if they look ok, if not then another thing for ebay, I got a set of the eyeball light pods like the speed 6 but they don't look good on the S, just don't go with the S lines. I want to just get it into paint ASAP do a bit of driving, Just one or two gelcoat cracks to grind out patch and up.
