You mean this, Vic? http://marston-sunbeam.org/sunbeam_shop16/index.php?id_product=332&controller=product&id_lang=3
There are no measures available. By eye the plate is 230mm wide. That means my huge plate of 220mm width plus the light won't match as they don't  doesn't for my present holder. I need to ask if I am allowed to drill a hole into the number plate.  :P

The MT110 from Peter Long is only 10 Euro more and also has the engraved Lucas letters. But thanks for this link.
Cheers, Thomas

This supplier (who attends one or two UK auto jumbles) http://www.vintage-replica.cz/indexE.htm  makes by far the best replica rear lamp with stop lamp as well if required..... even engraved with the Luca stuff.

Our Sunbeam shop still hasa few rear number plates for sale that have a cut out and screw holes for the MTT lamp.

Yes, I'm in Cologne! I do not expect any problem with the lens because it's not smaller than my old one (which passed the MOT test). My greater problem will be the hole in the number plate. I have a griddle covering the entire holder. So, I would need to drill through the number plate. Need to ask first, if that's legal... From my experience the technical requirements are similar to those in the UK but not the administrative stuff. They are difficult (see the griddle  :o).

Neat, problem solved, now all you need is a big hole in the number plate!

I am assuming you are in Germany? If so will the small lens conform to your laws seeing as how they seem to be so much stricter than ours?

Hi, I just called Cornucopia. Peter Long confirmes that both options are offered for his lamps, single AND double filament. Even LED is possible.

Ok! But assuming Matchless Clueless is right I would presume that Peter Long's lamp can be supplied with a double filament bulb or a LED. Anyway, he will tell me. I'll keep you informed. Thanks again and cheers, Thomas

Yes, like I said only room for one wire which goes in through that chrome nut, and likely only a single filament bulb holder. I suppose if you fitted an offset holder for a twin filament bulb you could use two thin cables.

Either way you can't get a safe illumination out that lens, and here its illegal that size.

Unless you are a real stickler for originality these are the lamp to use, stop/tail and legal lens.

Indeed, but the clue is at the back, one wire entry,as per original. Mind you, Pete can be full of surprises.
