The top is secured by one black plastic push pin and the bottom by silver screw into the rear vertical surface on the inside and a silver screw the bottom surface on the outside (hidden by mat).

Hi Steve,

Triumph fitted out the boot on the cheap. The light covers have to be folded across the lines to make the required shape, a bit like Origami. You'll need all those black push pins to keep them there.

S&S Preparations make a proper carpeted rear panel to conceal the light units, looks far better than the original 'pants' cardboard!Might be worth having a word with them and see if you can still get one.

See ya. Paul

Hiya,
My son in law bought me some as a present when re furbing my 7. He said he got them from RIMMERS.
We used them as side indicators as the front ones especially are not too conspicuous.
He just ordered two packs of the orange side lights instead of the two orange and two red and fitted LED bulbs which came off Ebay.
Hope that helps.
Cheers, John

Sorry matey,
no. Mine are more "flush" to the car and I have used them as indicators more than "cruise" lights. Just thought you may be able to adapt them for your needs.
Sorry my friend.
Hope you find what your looking for.
Cheers, John

The guy who owns the car has this photo of the back of them,
They were made in the UK so possibly used on UK cars?

Magnatex appear to be a similar company to Lucas, so the lights are possibly an accessory shop purchase. http://www.gracesguide.co.uk/Magnatex.
