Wow Barry, you were rich! My first wage was £3/10s a week for a 42 hour week in a factory. I was 15 years old. A year later I bought my first car, a 1954 Reliant convertible, for £50. You could drive a 3 wheeler at 16 then. Had some fun with that, and haven't been without a car since, apart from when I had one stolen back in 2009. All the best, Colin.

I expect Umbongo has seen festoon bulbs fitted on a different model year. I highly doubt he would give incorrect information deliberately.

Hiya Colin.My wage wasnt £10..my mistake.It was £5/7s.6d..with around a £1 a week tips.When i became a fully qualified Chef five years later it was not etiquete for a Chef to accept tips.
I still had £4.7s.6d to myself a week.Nice to think back now and then..cant spell reminise.Best Wishes Barry.PS If you are ever near Scarborough you must let me know .Barry

Will do Barry. It's an area I would like to visit again I must admit. Last time I was round that way my two girls were only small, and my son wasn't born! He's 37 now and oldest daughter is 45. Doesn't time fly! Perhaps when all these lock-downs are over I'll hitch up my caravan and head on up there.
Likewise if you are ever near Hertford, give me a call.
All the best. Colin

I am only guessing as looking at them on ebay, so the other 2 must look like these then .If they do then it looks like the housing is fixed to the vehicle by 2 screws under the lens which means you must have to hook the lens out anyway .So see if you can get a flat blade and prize it of careful .
