    Try this guy. If he doesn't have RHD lamps, he might at least be able to steer you in the right direction. You can also try Darrin at Citroen Classics in the UK.
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    Hi Woody,

    I recently bought a pair of new old stock Marchal Type 523 headlights from a dutch site, Les Six Troenes.

    I looked at getting mine re-metallised here but to get a reliable result would have cost at least $250 to $300 per bowl and possibly more. That was to have the glass removed, the bowls prepared, and then metallised. Most of the work was in the preparation work, which must be perfect (they use a 2 pack paint finish as a base) before the silvering would work.

    Les six troenes had a pair of NOS ones on their site and after some email communication I bought them. The package arrived beautifully packed and i am delighted in the lights, the bowls are just like new. All up they have cost about $330 the pair including postage. The person I dealt with there (Arnoud) converses in email with perfect english and is very knowledgeable on the various headlight models.

    regards, leconte

    Hang on Woody, did you say 5 trailer loads?

    Bugger me, you've only got half a DS!

    What reflector units do you want specifically? I have two NIB Marchal units. PM me if interested.
