It's worth noting that the MOT rules changed regarding LED lighting in January:

I'd think very carefully before fitting LED headlamps.  This, and the legislation relating to fitting LEDs in other positions, was flagged up in today's Classic Car Weekly. To quote:

'LEDs cannot be fitted anywhere else on historic vehicles, unless the LED bulbs fitted conform to (UN) ECE standard 128 as a component and (UN) ECE standard 148 when fitted. Very few bulbs on the market currently meet this standard, and are therefore illegal.'

Roger,

You may be pleased to know that the ruling for pre 1986 cars has been successfully challenged and clarified by The Minister for Roads, Charlotte Vere, as per the attachment.

Thanks Mike - I can't find a way to send a pm, so I'll ask here:  this is a good result, which I'd like to have publicized by the FBHVC.  Are you able to give permission for this, or should I contact Gil?  I have his contact details, having worked with him on Cobra and Mustang lighting in the past.

Thanks

Roger

p.s. I've emailed Gil as well, just don't want to tread on any toes.
