If you are looking for a stop gap temporary and cheaper arrangement, the side indicators from the Uno are fairly similar in design and size.
Karl,

Were these side repeaters available in white color also or was an aftermarket option??

Also me thinking on possibilty of some DIY lookalike lights for the same.

I have seen a few in white, though I am unsure if these have just faded or were originally white.

IMHO - Some 1973 (and earlier) cars did have white side repeaters. Even the front indicators had a white/clear lenses.

Front indicator lenses of all models from 54 to the 80s were white. Side indicator lenses were never white in 73, or any year after 57. 57 too I am not sure.

Yes, that White OE parking lenses were prevailent in those times in Delights, Presidents and earlier Padminis, but I cannot recollect seeing white signal indicator side lights ever. There, definately may have been white after markets though.

Hi all,
Here is the horn button that I have came across with my friend. Don't know which car's horn button is this, posting the pics ; hope you reply.
Don't know which is the upper side of this button, therefore got the both pics - Ulta-Sulta.

@ Mods,
If this post doesn't belongs to this thread, move it to the proper thread.

That button is from a Standard Pennant. The car visible in the picture is a Standard Herald, which uses the same steering wheel and therefore same size horn button, with different pattern.

If it is of no use to you, it is of plenty use to my Pennant!

Hey hold it, what did you do to the Brand new grey horn-button (albeit a Herald one) I gave you a few years ago?? If you dont need that one, I'll have it back, thanks!

As karl has replied here:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/1389915-post480.html (Vintage & Classic Car Parts)

This is a horn button for the Standard Pennant (aka 10 in India), hence the flag/banner (meaning of Pennant) although an aftermarket one, hence the outer plastic rim is broken.
I presume this is fitted in the same '62 Herald you've posted about:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/1389854-post888.html

I'm willing to swap this for a correct herald horn-button if the owner is okay with it.
