I knew very little about the Métier II other than a few photos in a book. I understand that this car was restored by Malcolm Ricketts: https://www.planexcars.jp/modules/myalb ... =146&cid=2

Looking into this a little more revealed an interesting You Tube of the prototype shown by Classic Team Lotus in Japan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZTsfcvFmmc

The rear lights do indeed to be from the Fiat 850. The front indicator/side lights are from a MGB.

this is the "rally" lamp. looks cleaner. I think the size is probably correct?

hope one of you UK folk know of something similar. Auto Electric doesn't seem to have anything similar...
