That was because I'm a bugger for leaving the boot lid up with the tool box in it while I'm doing stuff. But all I got with that was one really bright spot in the middle of the boot.

So I replaced that with one of these:


And quite literally, the whole boot lit-up. I'd take a picture to show you, but that would mean tidying the boot and it's too cold. But trust me, it works well.

Unfortunately, I could only find the COB Type 12V LEDs at a reasonable price from China - ... SwAsRfMgwU - and in pairs. But for £3, even with 15 days delay, they seem very reasonable.

Factory 1977 TR7 Sprint FHC VVC 697S (Now all of, but still needs putting together)
B&Y 73 Dolomite Sprint UVB 274M (kids!)
1970 Maroon 13/60 Herald Convertable (wife's fun car).
