Mmmm head gaskets

It’s been a slow few weeks on the buggy front as I have had to concentrate on the other everyday cars we have in the household.
My Audi has an oil leak and idling problem and my girlfriend’s Renault is suffering with an overheating problem. Looks like I’ll have to change the head gasket, yay!

I’m still deciding on rear tyres (not bothering about the fronts just yet) and reckon I may go for some Yokohama V801′s.
These are the Sport Terrain style mentioned a few posts ago, but I need to be quick finding a set as they have recently been replaced by a newer, worse looking tyre!

I have also been hunting for some lights. I will have some nice big shiny standard buggy headlights and some motorbike indicators on the front (probably mounted to the front beam), but on the rear I am hoping to make it a bit more corvette-style.
I hope to find some round or oval lights to do this, with some red stop/tail lights on either side and some clear indicators.

Here are a few sites I’ve been looking at for lights, but if you know any more in the UK, please let me know!
