rear lights, IVA OK?

Trying to keep my rear end tidy and had a thought. As per the photo below, would I get away with welding brackets discretely on my bottom rail and have my fog and reverse lamps mounted on these brackets with them connected with plug/socket arrangement so they could be removed when not required?







If it ain't broken, fix it anyway (just because).

Also make sure that the Fog light has the correct markings on the Lens. Quiet a few after market Len's including the round land rover ones do not...

Reverse light is not required for MOT's. or SVA, not sure about the "new" IVA though.

eta, but if fitted, it must work of course.

Why do they call Port Harcourt "The Garden City"?...... Becauase they can't spell Stramash.

Reverse is now in MoT for cars used after sept 09. But ive just realised its only a minor fail!
And the 'if fitted' is a myth for most items in MOT. Reverse is not tested on pre 09 cars so even if fitted wont fail.

Reversing light is part of the IVA.





The Answer for everything, but never the last word....
