On my P5B coupe '70 there is front headrests with reading-lights in them. I assume this is standard items on the P5B's ? However there are no glass or lenses that covers the lights; you can see directly into the bulbs. There must have been lenses at some point in time, and I wondered if these lights are some standard Lucas items used for other vehicles, or are they special Rover items ? If the last is true, It will probably be impossible to find new lenses or ??

Phil's right. My car has had headrests since new and the festoon lamps are recessed into a shroud of bright metal and can only be seen if you dip your head and look upwards or if the headrests are so high that the lamps are above eye level. I remember reading that no lenses were fitted and this seems to cause people some confusion. Richard
Why not visit this web site? www.ultraleds.co.uk They have all types of LED's I notice that if you fit LED lamps to the indicators, you need a special indicator flasher relay since the wattage value is greatly reduced with LEDS and unless the relay is changed, the indicators won't flash properly.
It's quite correct that there are no lenses on the head restraint reading lamps. [glow=red,2,300]A WORD OF CAUTION[/glow] NEVER let the head restraint sit so low that the lamp is in contact with the surface of the seat - if the lamp is on, the heat from the bulb WILL mark / burn the seat - you have been warned 'cos it happened on mine!!
