round light conversion

Recommended Posts

I am have this fitted to my gt.

Some of the fibreglass has had to be removed where the original lights were fitted for the round light panel to fit.

Who ever has done this what did you do to keep the water out. Did you just attack the inside with silicone seal, or from the outside, or before the panel is fited. ??? It was one from sj's and quite a bit of rubbing down etc has been done just to get it to fit at all.

Just wondering whats the best way as the whole kit is a bit of make it up as you go along.

Cheers

Neil

Wayne, it wouldn't fit the G shape car without some serious messing, if at all. The G cars are a lot more difficult to upgrade as can be seen from some of the poorer example on here.

The best upgraded G back end is Silverfrosts in my opinion. It looks mega clean and has improved the original. see this thread.

Hear what your saying, not sure on the round lights against the squared off box shape.

Suggest you get someone to photoshop your intentions on before you get going on fabrication. You don't want to find half way through that it looks like a dogs breakfast.

If I where going to fit round rear lights that the only way to go on an old esprit wpuld be to go the whole hog and mesh the whole rear like the f40. But i like the rover back lights!
