  2. Very bright!

    Must admit, it does sound a better idea than reversing and hoping that people notice the huge box shape on wheels that is moving backwards!

    Perhaps I can persuade Matt to get them fitted ... although I suspect the response will be getting the leaking window sorted and finding whatever loose wire is causing the temperamental starting issues is higher up the list of priorities :)

    I have been wanting to do this as when its dark you cant see anything behind.

    update. seems they only work sometimes due to distance of the pin in the sender. tried a washer between gearbox and sender and that fixed it for a few days :(

    might be unrelated but think others have had same issue

    Could be that the switch has failed due to oil contamination inside the switch meaning it's not up to the job. Find an original switch and see how that works.

    Check Heritage out. I find Volkspears quite good for original bits like these.

    Would recommend fitting a fuse with a smaller rating 5 - 10 amps as coil feed would not normally be fused as if reverse lights shorted could burn back to fuse boxin worst case scenario
  9. According to the website, there's a wiring kit that includes the inline fuse holder plus 5a glass fuse:
