Which tail-lights do you refer to here? The select or Superselect ones (3112 as I understand, is a selected Superselect )

If some one needs the lens for select, I can get him the full red repro one for 50 bucks a set . But I need to visit my home town for that.

Yes they look cool and also have a shorter beak , which further improves their look.

I do agree they look cool. Trims, lights, and details of Selects, and Super Selects both have their own plus points, and their own charm. BUT, it all looks good only in the specific context - if it is Oh-Ree-G-Nal to the model !

Of course, I also do respect the fact that every car collector has his own way of doing up his car, and that is what sets every car in the club apart from the other !!

The point here is, that you must ENJOY yourself and your car. Otherwise, the whole exercise is pointless !

How come it doesnt have any badges on btw? Atleast the select's "FIAT" badge on the bonnet edge (you'll need to replace the SS crest with a select one for that though)

Bhabar's like their cars clean , they have enough badges in store. they even removed the PDI and other original sticker from windshield of the LHD, which is contrary to what you and I do.
