Lights fixed...

After a trip out on the SQ4 recently, I realised that some improvements to the lighting would be helpful. The SQ4 has a LED headlamp from CDRC - one of their 'double dipper' lamps in an old BPF reflector. Dip is very good, and high beam goes a long way but doesn't illuminate much when it gets there...

Looking at this lamp against a tungsten BPF bulb I have realised the it needs a little focus adjustment (its quite old - later ones are apparently adjustable) and axially it does not align properly.

I've de-soldered and moved the mounting ring to fix both the alignment & focus problem, but to sort the reflector out I have put it in the W/NG, which has a relatively new reflector.

We'll need a night time test run to see how we get on, and where we go with the SQ4. In the meantime, the W/NG also has a new dip switch:


Only problem is, the dipswitch is too close to the ignition lever on full advance...
