    And the glass lenses don't did polishing ever 6 months. That's one thing i'm sick of doing when taking cars for mot's.

    Mr Nozzle - love your optimism, don't hold your breath.....
    As you may recall I bought Carols DRL style fronts and latterly the Lexus style rears. Not to fit but to dismantle. Carol delivered the lights in the original packaging - anyway to cut a long story short I tracked down the manufacturing plant that make the clear lenses and after some bodged Taiwanese Google translations got the CEO of Truparts email and contact details. They make almost everything plastic. Courteous exchanges by email turned into high level Execs giving me a call. I've left it with the full weight of the 'mothership' supporting me obtaining the front clear lens' as a redesigned spare (no experts reinventing a new lens coating) but I must go through the EU/UK distribution channels.

    I need to revisit my lighting progress but got to repair the washing machine first, plus 20 other jobs on the Blue To Do board.

    Oh and Sealeys 1/2" Hex/Star/Torx sets are shite. Any recommendations anyone?

    They have different ranges and quality reflect the price

    I have the boggo basic sealeys and they lasted ok, broke a couple so bought a draper expert set - lasting quite well, the bits are holding shape and none broke or twisted yet.
