Its been a good while since I have had any time for trawling the list and
when I do the first message I see is yours, and I have a solution!!!
My TR4 has the spot lamps behind the grille, I will check out the exact set
up and let you know, I know this limits the amount of light getting through
but I still find them very useful.
If you follow the link above you can see how well they are hidden, (thats me
in the check shirt).
