View Full Version : Lights and Instruments

I am in the process of building a GD in Spain.

I would like to know the brands and references of the front, rear pilots and other lights, or at least for what cars are this lights made originally for ( for example front lights from Mini or other car, etc) in that way will be easy for me to buy them in Spain in any spare parts shop. I will use them brand new, and the rear pilots English stile rounds, not American square ones.

Wich is a good source for instruments, good looking and not very expesive, I would like order them from any British source, the company name and fax will be highly apprecciate.

Thank you for your help.

Granada, Spain.

sorry but why not order them from gd ? Save a lot of time and effort and i doubt if they are any more expensive .

I used ETB they have a good range and can supply SVA bezels but I doubt you need those in Spain.They also make aggod set of warning lights that look very classy.As an idea of price my spedo cost 120 Rev counter 65 small instruments work out at average out at 18 then you have to by the sendor eg oil pressure 20 temp 7 you have to add vat at 17.5% to all this. Phone 44 702 711127 fax 44 702 712322 My comlete set of six gauges came to 370.3 including Vat. I include a picture so yo can see what they look like, but ETB willmake any style tou like, there are a clock and an oil temperature gauge shown that are not included in the price I've just added them.

Thank you for the information about the lights and instruments.

All the Spacial parts made for restoration or custom made are pretty much charper than the ones I could find in Spain.

The lights, swiches, and other parts that could be source from standar cars I am interested in source them from Spain, the reason is that the standar cars spare parts cost in Spain is about the half or even less than in England, and at the same time I save freight and packing.

This is why I would like to know wich cars used this parts that could be used in a Cobra, the pilots look like simillar to some old Land Rover ones, lights loos the mini ones, etc, therefore i would like to know the cars that used the lights and pilots ables to be used in a Cobra.

Thank you.
