    See, always more than one answer , it's known as divergent thinking .

    That's what I meant by 'filling the boot with a panel' I'll consider both options.

    Just stepping back to indicator repeaters, could they be in the side of the headlamp shell?

    I remember a Steve Goodridge article in Street Machine in the early 90's that had that done, I THINK he used Vauxhall Corsa side repeaters?

    Yup to both of those though would need to check 5' angle view from rear isn't obstructed by anything I've a set headlamps , well 2 pairs, that I was preparing to use on BIVA test incorporating main front indicators into light unit as well but giving a period feel to them as well . Best to use clear repeaters with orange bulbs so they can be colour coded if required

    I was thinking of aftermarket smoked ones on a black car.

    I'm not sure of the legaility Dusty , I'd have to chcek up on it. The smoked units still carry a legal E11 mark ( not required for BIVA) but there is a thing somewhere in MOT about paint applied to lighting surfaces ? However I believe the tint is IN the perspex probably so doesnt apply, well that would be my arguement anyway .

    The 'extreme outer edge' definition is different to that of floor line and is ( basically) taken as the widest point of the car . So on a Lotus 7 / hot rod style vehicle the hinges and handles can protrude up to 50mm .The same is also possible on a 427 Cobra style vehicle as the measurement would be taken across the flared arches. 289 versions may not be so lucky.

    This is clarified in glossary of terms at the rear of the manual. pages 293 and 295
    this one of the best things to have been on here for ages
    sorry to but in to this but does this mean that if i have the right filler cap /radius on it that it can be fitted on the out side up to 50mm as my wheel are out side the body

    Bully depends for what purpose you are talking about BIVA MOT , C&U etc etc ? Stick this up as a question in tech and we'll chat.
