Default Rear lights

Hi all

I am trying to extent out the rear lights and indicators to meet the SVA requirements for side view. but cannot find any plastic pipe the right diameter.

Has anybody done this and if you have what did you use.

PS. I have the standard marlin red and yellow rear lights and indicators

all the best

Try a couple of the electrical supply companies. (poss Premier Wiring)

I'm pretty sure there are spacers made for these lights.

12MM MDF, 3" and 4" holesaw.
Painted them black.
I used m6 studding to hold the lights on for SVA.

Hi

12mm is that enough to bring the lights out far enough to sat the sva ?

It looked like it needed to be around 50 or 60 mm extension to get 50% area viewable at 85 degrees

all the best
