    Pm knipdlo on this site. He may be able to scan and email the paper template for marking the wing.

    Does this assist at all? It's an ID19, so probably not a factory fitting.
    I was told the rubber under those lamps differs between the original and revised single headlight fronts.

    I might be able to help if it's the aftermarket teardrop lights (the ones that look a lot nicer). The blue ID19 here is drilled for them and has black rubber plugs in the holes. Having said that ................... Is it drilled correctly

    it would most likely have had these ones



    You do realise they are foglights, not driving lights? And the lenses in them will be rusted beyond use There not easy to find. If I found a set, I'd retrofit some driving light lenses to them and paint them to the colour of the blue car.... filling the holes in the guards

    There the genuine lights ( I think ). none of my cars will be drilled for those. It's possible Rogers DS19 may have had them though ?

    Brian's look like the ones the Porsche folk buy for silly money.

    Mine are like the ones in Shane's Slough pic.

    I have just noticed that unlike David,s the holes on mine are located on an equilateral triangle.

    May I make a small suggestion? Make a cardboard pattern of the base. Drive the mounting studs through and press or trace the shape of the base into the cardboard. Carefully cut that out and locate your lamps that way. If you aren't quite sure still where to locate the lamps, layout some gentle masking tape (like Scotch "Painter's Blue") throughout the area and find your holes on that.
