I've no idea which indicators it should've had but they replaced the clear lamps with amber I'd have chosen the clear

Pre 94 from memory are orange but clear look much nicer IMO.

Surprised me as well but correct for the year. Spent some serious coin cleaning it...

He certainly did! :)
Also the gun-smith, really enjoyed seeing someone actually make and fix things. So rare these days to see real craftsmanship.

Agreed ...a clever skilled old bloke.
They'd have been stainless if I'd re-made them :D:D

If you like craftsmanship try watching The Repair Shop. Some of what they do is amazing.

Just watched that this evening. They repaired an alabaster ceiling light ... she did a brilliant job
