Right heres the deal....

At the moment my brake lights are running through the indicator wiring (US spec bus)
ie: when i press the brake pedal, both rear indicators light up.

Will this pass a UK mot as it is, or will i have to rewire the brake lights as per UK cars ??

Muchos thanx in advance peeps

Not 100% on this, but i think you might need to rewire as per UK spec.

Re-wiring it isn't a problem, i just wanted to know if it needed to be done or not ;)

I believe pre 65 is ok, later than that it's a quick rewire. Not 100% sure on 65 being the cut off date but there definately is one.


Personally i kept the all reds and relocated the indicators into the reversing lamps with orange bulbs :D
