Lotus Elan

Sparto side repeater.

Hi all.

I'm sure your sick of this subject but as these things are rare i was hoping some one had a bit of knowledge of them.

When i got my Elan it had Lucas wing repeaters fitted but only because one of the Sparto bases had corroded and was intermittently working, so i searched through the boxes of bits and found one complete unit (looks like a good crack free cover and grubby but intact Bezel) then i found parts of the second one (good lens / bezel and a corroded and slightly damaged base)

What i would like to know before i start (knowing how rare they are) can i buy a replacement base / Bulb holder or is that a non starter?? (have to fix this one)

If i do have to fix it does anyone know what size machine screws the used to fix the cover to the base? (mine are missing) and is the rubber seal just made from 1mm sheet or is it shaped around the base?

Thanks.
Chris

The rubber is shaped around the base, a bit flat sheet would do.

None of the parts are readily available - all of the similar lights have a different construction.
