Mine came with the plugs loose in packaging.

wiring has to go through headlamp bowl grommet on Defender so they leave them off.

mine had no instructions either.
found sheet by google ing for instructions for wipac LED defender or similar :wink:

got about 20 meters of rail at work too :lol:

Front bumper waxed on the back and foglamp brackets fixed. They clear the Microbus bumpers nicely :D ImageImage

PS you really do need Lazy Tongs or an air rivet tool to set them down, but pushing down hard on LT's past the front scuttle panel with only mm's to spare is a bit of a worry :shock:

Decided a while back to go "round with round" onnthe foglamps, so the big question is...do I go classic with some Hella Comet 500 or go modern to match the headlamps with the Comet FF 500?

I like the look of the defender headlamps, do I just need a set of brickwerks rings to make them fit?

As long as you have the original type Hella two-piece headlamp mounts (bracket + bucket/ring) then the front clamp rings will work.
Later SA made headlamps have the adjusters attaching direct onto the lens unit and no bucket/ring to carry the lamp.
