Hi John,

Thanks for that!! I thought it would have a lucas light, and the headlight rim and shell i had off you were for the lucas 5 3/4, but i was a bit baffled as to whether Wipac made a lucas "clone" to fit them, as the switches are Wipac and i saw a Wipac headlight on ebay..

Still, i know what to get now!! Been cleaning up my wheels today! Well pleased with them!!

Wipac v Lucas

The AMC engined falcon 87's had Wipac headlights, switches alternator etc. , but the Villiers engined Falcons all had Lucas electrics, strangely enough you can get Wipac rims in Lucas sizes ?? as well as the smaller 5 1/2" Wipac size ??
