Does anyone have these Librands fitted to their car? I prefer not to attach brackets to the body, so the idea of attaching to the over-riders sounds good?

Do they vibrate noticeably?
Does anyone have pictures they can share of these fitted?

Thanks,

I thought the Librands brackets for cars with overiders actually bolted to the bodywork rather than the overider brackets. Can anyone clarify?

Incidentally are 100w bulbs legal for road use?

I think that you will find that these are fitted to brackets on the front wings, if you look closely at the O/S lamp.

The Librands seem to be fixed to body rather than overidders.

When an auto electrician looked at my Roadster recently, he thought that fixing to the overriders OR the angle iron below the body were possibilities as I would prefer not to drill the body.

Smaller 5 ins spots would be my preferance. Big price range on these.

Cheers

The librands brackets i fitted required four holes three for the stainless allen key bolts and one where you thread the cable through, it comes with a rubber gasket and is a fit and forget for the life of the car they are really smart with no vibration much better than the Morgan ones.I dont normally say this regarding Morgan bits but well worth the money.

PS - Not checked yet:-

Would a vertical line of lights(headlight/indicator/low fitted spot) look good? Would the 5 ins spotlight reduce ground clearance?

A hole anywhere around the overrider to fix the spot could be drilled to position the spot as required?

Comments please.

Cheers

I approached Librands some time ago about fitting spots to an overrider car. Their kit definitely bolts to the wing. The overrider brackets are quite flimsy and would cause the lights to vibrate. I think Gambalunga found a solution with a set up from his Milan dealer.

The Librands brackets are quality stainless, more than ample for a medium spotlight fitted on the car for four years and did not vibrate.

If the bulb has an E mark on its metal fitting it is legal to use on the road.

If you can find a 100 watt bulb with that E mark it is legal to use.

I have as yet to find a 100 watt bulb with an E mark.

I have a set of the Librands brackets (bolt to wing), and the exact same lamps that Librands sell (Wipac s/s) unused, happy to sell at about half Librands price. PM me if interested! They don't fit my car (narrow 4/4).
