I fitted a pair of LED rear lights from TA Terry's store last weekend and they really do make the difference shown in the pictures in his store and are very easy to fit. Total time taken on this upgrade (for safety) was about 2 hours including Dremmelling out the old rivets. The mod is totally reversible too if a future owner wants to reverse it ... provided you keep the old inner parts! Contact Terry via his shop page.
David Mullen has also sent in a new Collectible picture of an MG Y in Bala, Gwynedd, North Wales, UK. Apparently this picture is also available from the Francis Firth Collection if you want a large wall picture version too.
