    Default festoon globes?

    Anyone know where I can get 11 x 45 festoon globes in 5 & 7 Watts to suit the interior of my R17? My local auto parts places don't stock them and even Narva don't make them (apparently).

    Cheers

    I'm sure I have them in stock, I carry festoon globes and although I can't remember the size I know I've used them in interior lights, I'll check tomorrow.

    It looks like they do 11 x 41 - reckon I've used them in my R17 without issues...

    Thanks David, I will get them locally. I just thought they would be too short, so did not try them.

    A little bit of judicious bending on the springy connectors goes a long way ;-)
