Looks very good Simon!!

I may be wrong, but I dont think it is a legal requirement to have orange side reflectors on a UK registered car.......are these not primarily fitted for the US market?

I dont think it matters for the UK. For US spec I believe these reflectors are illuminated....and for Japan they are red.....

I think they are still orange. But a darker orange.
I wonder if a colour chart exists to check if the exact orange is within range?

They are no darker than the rear lights so should be ok.....modern cars dont have side reflectors so not a legal requirement......
