    Possibly, yeah. If I have to move it, I could still refit the hoop without disturbing the lamp bar - the plate was mounted to it. We'll see how lucky I am...

    Love that film... watching that with my Dad prompted us to get the car... Did the same thing but used the bumper. Chrome brackets are meant for a custom harley headlight/fork.

    Must get round to wiring them in...

    Surely those lamps are going to impede the flow of air into the radiator

    D'oh! *checks film on IMDb*

    Ah, see, my excuse is that I'm far too young to get the reference I don't actually think I've seen the film..

    I'm pretty sure I've got plenty of airfow - the car runs exceptionally cool anyway so I don't expect any issues with mine.

    Did think about that, but I’ve not noticed any difference in running temps underway and in traffic the fan kicks in so no difference there. It’s still a big hole!

    I don’t run with a grill - that made a massive difference when I removed that.
