Ooops! yes forgot about that. I have now got the original type lens (S179) fitted to a single stop/tail lamp base (possibly a Lucas L529) The original lamp had separate tail and stop bulbs but the base shape must be the same as my lens fits perfectly. Yes, that is the original back plate

Hi Ozmadman that second picture and remarks are great as both your original light are available and also the correct lens but not both together, this could be an expensive rear light. Nearly ordered wrong number plate as the one on ebay had round curve where it meets mudguard but it had continuous curve from top of light to sides and I see yours are sculptured great picture. Still trying to work out how to get a picture on here.Ah! writing this have just seen it must be an age thing
