S4 side lights

PostPost by: holywood3645 » Mon Nov 14, 2005 8:00 pm

I'm restoring my S4 and have difficulty removing the side lights. If
they happen to break during attempted removal, are they still
availiable from any of the usual sources? I would hate to paint the
car with them in place.

Be careful, if you are talking about the orange sidelight repeaters, I
bought two from CN a few years ago & they are larger than original. They
told me at the time that the original ones were unobtainable.

The PO removed all of the side markers and the LOTUS letters on the
trunk when he had the car painted 15 or so years ago and I have a box
full of stuff. If you need one let me know and I'll send it to you.

You can see the car on Steve's 1969 ELAN in the photo section.
