Let me guess ... they were originally fitted in Pete Stringfellow's jacuzzi?

You are building a mobile jacuzzi!

Look a little higher. They were rather agricultural it can be said but it did the job. The residents of Dresden cirtainly didn't like them!

Wow, the Beast. Not seen that for decades. Was down in Spain last i heard. Did have a Rolls grille on it at one point but he was sued.

Always reminds me of the car the Grizwalds used in the film Vacation. The family truckster DeLuxe??

But no, not anything like that.

To clear things up, those lights were fitted to a car at one point but they were originally fitted to something else altogether. The clue is 'Dresden'.

Bingo!

Those lights were fitted to the wing undersides on Lancasters and Wellingtons. They are genuine Air Ministry items and had been sealed in the original box since 1944. I couldn't believe it when a NOS pair turned up on eBay with a BIN of £17.99.
