    Not as yet Neil but I have been likened to Mad Eye from Harry Potter mate.

    Went for post op yesterday, Doc's happy with the way it's going and I'm aloud to resume a more normal if gentle life whilst I wait for the bubble to disappear. He feels I should get about 85% vision back which is excellent when you think 9 days ago I had fek all in it.

    Cheers Tim W.

    You should have driven the Pop to City Road, I could have looked after it for you, driving around to save parking while you were in Moorfields!
    Sorry to hear of your woes, wish you a speedy recovery.
    I may live in East London, I may have a number plate that reads "Chopt",
    but I do NOT use 6" wheel spacers!

    Thanks for the offer Ian, but my missus complains about pushing around the drive so pushing it to London is deffo a no go mate .
    Thanks, it's getting clearer every week now.
    Cheers Tim W.

    Just a quick update,my eye surgery has been a success but I still can't see properly as it's caused a cataract I've just been given an appointment to have that done... Mid July So I'll not be doing much Pop work for a while. Let's hope my thread doesn't heal up

    More when I do more!!!!!

    Cheers. Tim W.

    As above, take care mate, you only get one set of eyes . I was wondering only the other day if it was cold enough yet for you to do some more work outside on the car

    Well I may be partially sighted, but I’ve still been tinkering…

    As I’m running red rear lamps (old style) I thought it would be safer to have a 3rd brake lamp in the rear window.
    So, I did a bit of one eyed CAD work and had these laser cut.



    Then got them pressed and had the corners fused at work



    Tried them on the lamp last night but I need a diffuser as well





    Not sure which text size will be best?

    Still it’s nice keeping my hand in!

    That’s it for now, more when I do more.

    Cheers. Tim W.

    Is the red lens plastic Tim? Maybe sand it with fine wet n dry to diffuse the light a bit.

    It is Neil, that may well happen, I have a couple of pieces of polycarb with an NROB finish to try first.

    Top for me too, have a look for some old ceiling lighting, either the flat recessed type or a tube diffuser, loads being chucked out when LED stuff gets fitted
