Back up lights

Postby TigerFogie » Mon Feb 12, 2018 2:19 pm

1) I understand that the rectangular back up lights for a Tiger Mk 2 are the same as for a Series V Alpine. Is this correct?
2) The white interior reflectors for my back up lights are quite rusty. The exteriors are in fine shape. Does anyone know of a set for sale or failing that, can these be restored? I also need gaskets if anyone knows where the might be found.

1-yes the Wipac lights are the same for the S5 and the MKII
2-The outsides are made of stainless and won't rust. The inner reflectors were thin metal and rusted away easily. I have found no replacements or gaskets other than buying another set and swapping parts around.
