Tank had a quick rinse with petrol and the plug put back in ...fuel line at the other end connected so I spun it over on the key to see if it would draw up some petrol into the inline fuel filter I fitted...it did! so I gave it a longer spin over and we got some bangs and pops. I thought a check of the spark was in order and it was a sickly yellow not a nice white one so will check the points next.

I have just received a box of indicator and brake lights from Chris Gawne and my eagle eye had spotted some festoon mounting lamp holders minus their lenses so I got a little farther with rebuilding the number plate lights as the originals are in very poor shape with the internal steel plate in one completly shot. So a quick trace round a piece of scrap aluminium plate and a bit of drilling and cutting Ta Dah! Bit more to do but I now have 2 newish bulb holders to fit into the number plate light castings. The badly corroded plate can be seen in the first picture as well as the seized solid cable connection. I just need to find some perspex or similar to make a lenses for each lamp. Typical Lancia the oblong hole in the middle of the plate matches up with a similar hole in the boot lid allowing I expect light to illuminate the boot when the side lights etc are on can't wait  Smiley Smiley Smiley
The second picture shows the bulb holder salvaged from the Chris Gawne hoard.

I might look into running a separate earth for these lamps as this will ensure a better performance rather than relying on the connection via the boot lid hinges. Also a more weather proof sealing for the lamps as I am guessing they would be a major water ingress spot for the boot when the seals are a bit tired (mine were stuck on with what looks like tar!)

Still a fair bit of wiring to do before the number plate lights are finished plus what to do about the non-existent chrome???

The piccy shows a mock up with the minivan lenses stuck on with bluetack...problem is I will have to cut the wing to get this light fitting to fit.

Another idea would be two separate lights like this...Any comments on this would be most gratefully received.

I think the minivan units work well. My car has replacement units which I'm not entirely happy with, and having looked at the alternatives available I decided the mini ones were probably the best solution, but decided to stick with what I had after seeing the prices they fetched! For me the individual lamps you show look too messy.
