    Been chipping away doing a few jobs today. Decided to mount up the lights but having trouble finding the correct measurements for the rear number plate and light.

    The beehive lights were already located as the body is molded at that location to accept them, however the measurements that I have for the number plate location put it too high up. All of the photos that I look at have the number plate directly in-between the lights.

    It's almost like the beehives lights are mounted in the wrong location, which there is little I can do about short of re-glassing them. This may be on the cards down the track, but not something I want / need to do right now.

    Also spent some time going through the lenses I had to find a matching pair. I have a few symmetrical lenses, which are correct for the year but only one of the correct style Bosch scripted lenses so had to make do with some Hellas instead. I'll try and trade to get another Bosch lense.

      The mounting holes are 175mm down from the decklid shut line. Also confirmed that the number plate should be level with the lights. Looks heaps better now.
