Fitted today clear rear brake light , brought from Foci.
Matches in better than the old red light.

Removed two hex screws , pull forward, disconnect rear washer tube , reconnect washer tube to new light , slide back in and replace the hex screws , 2 minute job :)

black and either yellow or green woulld look nice ide go more towards the green but red would work a nice red


Yellow would be very unique but I agree green would be sick

Did not take them off , the only part i removed was the spring and used a small brush , gave them 2 coats of paint.

All i have left now is grout the tile's on the floor , fit the kick boards and a small amount of Sealing around edges.Only had one week off so now back at work i'm having to wait until the weekend for the final bits , but not far from finishing.then i have to fit the old kitchen into my gagrage , but that won't take too long.

Fair play mate. If there wasn't the distance I'd pop round n finish it off for you while you was at work lol.
