Julf,
Who supplies these as I want to do an upgrade on the bulbs in my 403 when I hopefully return it to the road early next year. This would seem a much better idea than resistors or led's with resistance built in.

Geoff,

I'm not quite sure what the pinout of the Lucas relay on the 403
is, but a lot of British cars from the 60's on used a standard
pinout - this relay would work:

Thanks Julf,
I think this can be fitted to the system without too much alteration if any to the wiring and probably would be a direct replacement. for the relays on the later cars 410/411 etc.
Mind blowing price on their light sets though.
Geoff.

Hi Griebel,

I travel to Copenhagen / Odense regularly if you need me to bring them over.

Hallo Greg,-

Thanks for your kind offer to bring parts to DK,but as you can see on my
picture earlier,we have solved the problem ourselves..the correct ribs and all
I have seen the lamps on ebay (You can also get them as repro...),but they do not have the ribbed lenses,- the right ones is Lucas 464,I think...but I'm certainly no expert

Regards from Griebel
