yes, but will need stalks extending to meet IVA spacings i.e. 400mm from edge.





Duratec Engine is fitted, MS2 Extra V3 is assembled and tested, engine running, car now built. IVA passed 26/02/2016

Spacing is assuming you are putting them on the nose cone of a 7 type car. I haven't had to space mine as they are on the headlight bracket not the nose cone.

Lights dont need to be E marked, as long as they emit a similar light to that of an emarked light. (Ie intensity and colour).

Just to confirm. During my IVA, it was only the headlights and fog that he checked for markings. Said the indicators don't need to be E marked, but if they are, they must be correct for the light.

I used 15mm Stainless plumbing tubing, goes right through the nose cone.

I used bike indicators, copper radiator pipe for the core and then plastic tube from B&Q, sprayed to the right colour for the outer layer. The insulating tape was just to get a tight fit. The wires run through a nut that was hammered and then glued into the end of the pipe. I then drilled a hole through the corresponding bolts to feed the wire through. In that way, I only needed a small hole through the nose cone. The large blue nut is a plastic plumbing part that's cosmetic only.

Apologies, you are right, I should have been clearer. The Rear Fog does indeed need to be E marked (and F or B marked).
However Headlights dont need to be E marked (only Gas discharge/LEDs, which are almost impossible to install on a kitcar.)
