I'm after a pair of the early metal bodied lights in good condition. Ideally with the reflectors not affected by moisture ingress.
Thanks in advance.

Usually quickly rusted out. They were ended and superseded by the plastic version.

The problem is that the plastic ones all seem to have aged and cracked. I don't think they can be broken down to be restored either. I'd rather the metal ones so I can strip them down. The thought of spending £280 each on new plastic body ones doesn't appeal either.

Rob, I have one good one and one that has cracked glass and has the little angled bit broke off but all the internals look good.

Nice one Karl. How much do you want for them?

Got some knackered plastic ones(damage from gravel being thrown at me) if you want them?
And as I still want the cam and head at some time knock a bit off that.
Pm me your address and I'll get them over to you.
Hoping to get over to mondello again next year, see you there
