What make are your smaller driving lights, and where did you source them from?

I can't speak for Robin, but I got my driving lights from SVC, so they where a perfect match for my headlights.

7" Stainless Headlight:

5 3/4" Stailess Driving Light:

The wire guards came from Rimmer Bros - not SVC.

Hi Goo

I have the same headlights and so have the same option as yourself, but Robin's driving lights look as though they may be smaller than 5 3/4" and I thought looked good. But it would be nice to match them, so now I am torn!

If you mean IVA, yes.

They're the IVA OK ones from Marlin. No need to cover them up. I think most of the chaps (Patrick, Peter & Robin) have the same ones.

As I remember they are Wipac. Sold as replacements for those on a modern Mini which corrode I believe lol. The Wipac lights are stainless. They are a bit smaller than the 5 3/4" lights from SVC but less than half the price.

I've got Wipac ones on my cabrio, and after 3 years the chrome is peeling off and rust showing through.
