    I wonder if the amber units on the front bumper are reflectors or amber lights. No mention of them in the add.

    I'd say LIGHTS! Look closely and see the screws holding the lens.

    I have reflectors on my trailer that have screws holding them.

    Hello All, I am the seller. The amber lights on the front bumper are just parking lights. The rewiring consisted of a complete street rod style wiring kit by “Kwik Wire”. It covered everything from the front lights to the rear lights, everything under the hood and under the dash. All modern and proper fuses and relays. The only original electric items left on this car are the starter and the starter relay.

    It would be interesting to see how he mounted them. I wonder if they're mounted to the bumper brackets.

    I like the idea of a cold start but video but how accurate can a cell phone do the job ? I want to see the exhaust color on start up as well as after she's had a cool down . Nice car like the different steering col. cover.

    The steering column surround is the correct one and has been painted. Different look.

    I bought lots of vintage bikes on eBay and would never repeat or compound by spending more on a car I didn't see in person.
    Me no speak S2 Alpines just commenting that it looks better than the old Bakelite color.
    If you live in the sunny weather most anything is better than black vinyl. I've had red and black interiors in convertibles and really enjoy the black fabric in the Tiger. I'm still careful to fold seats fwd when parked in sun as everything fades especially red.
    The best thing I like about the S2 was it being a Bond car. More glam then Maxwell Smart.
