Mk.1 twin rear light

In the process of acquiring a slightly damaged Mk.1 rear clip with the typical single rear lights fitted.
As I need to repair / fettle anyway I thought that going for the twin rear lights might be an interesting alternative.

In the last couple of years there was a UK supplier of these fibreglass light pods but they now seem to have vanished.
Does anyone know if they can still be purchased.
I'm hoping it wasn't GT Forte that was the supplier!

Might end up that I've got to make from scratch but always worth looking for the easier (potentially) solution.

This article about GT40P-1040 clearly identifies the type

This was one of the options I decided on for the Mk1 kit I just picked up from RCR. I'm not sure where he gets them from but I like the look.

Andrew,
Mine came with my kit. Fran said he had to get them from the UK. I'll dig through my boxes to see if I can find them. Will let you know.

@Shed Racing @Andy318is If you decide on twin rear light setups, I'd be interested to hear what height the lower lights end up at. I'm pretty sure it's a minimum of 350mm for UK IVA test (though you car has already passed, I guess, Andy?).

Eddy,
The height of the bottom tail light on my RCR40 is 18 1/2" (470mm). That measurement is taken from the floor to the bottom of the tail light itself. Hope this helps.

I'm just fine tuning using a couple reference photos as a guide until I'm happy with the look
