Mike - Thanks again.

Quick Test:
In between Christmas shopping, I compared the Lucas reflectors to my LED ones.

There are very close in size.



And the chrome ring fits around the LED, which has to be a good sign.



So it is definitely worth removing them to see if I can get the 'edge' profiles to match.



Which would allow the Lucas rubber to hold both the LED reflector and chrome ring in place.

Buzzing
When I first fitted the seats, I forgot to tape the seat belts out of the way first.

This meant the back of the seats 'trapped' the top fixing hooks in a 'pointing downward' position.



They still did the job, but it was something I was never 100% happy with.

So before the 2nd MOT, I managed to use a long lever, plus some brute force and ignorance to fix this.
( Resulting in just a minor loss of skin from my knuckles. )

So now, both the fixing hooks point upwards.



The problem is that the two separate plates on the passenger size buzz like crazy when I am driving around by myself.

So at some point I will add some tape/rubber in between the plates to see if that helps.

Cordite Count:
I was thinking about this the other day and I only know of four of the original ‘Sammio Cordite’ cars that were completed and on the road.

Obviously, if anyone knows of any others, I'd love to know.
