Hi,

I'm wanting to change a few little things on my car, so thought I'd pick your collective minds for advice on where to purchase.

- I have an orange indicator in my front lights, and would like to change it for a clear one with orange bulb. I've seen plenty of people with this mod, but where are they from? I don't want to change the whole unit, just the orange bit.

- The car also has small orange side repeaters. Again, I would like to get some clear ones but not sure where to source them.

- Rear diffuser - I've emailed Steve Smith about his rear diffuser - any others I should be looking at? I've ordered some carbon side skirts and front splitter from elsewhere, so I'm going to the full Halfords look wink

- Taller rear spoiler mounts - again, I've asked SS about these, but anywhere else to look?

Thanks in advance


PS I also have 3 original wheels for sale - two fronts and a rear if anyone is interested. I'm looking to get a second set of wheels in a different style, and seen some nice ones on the MacG racing site.

Steve Smith for all the carbon bits. Also for the higher rear wing towers. He did the first pair for me and you can have the any colour you want. It makes all the difference to seeing out of your rear view mirrors.

Thanks - I've just had an email back from him saying that Jennifer longer makes the diffusers or the rear spoiler mounts! Such a shame. Anybody know of anywhere else to source them?

Assuming they are just alloy; I would google the nearest light engineering company that does water jet cutting, give them your originals and ask them to make a pair that are longer?


ETA: maybe this lot? https://www.barringtonmetalworks.co.uk/

Also interest in your source for side skirts. SS builds these as part of the build so they flush with the bottom of the car. Otherwise speed bumps will likely rip them off!
