    CCTV recommendations

    I've been following this thread with interest as I'm also looking at installing a CCTV syste due to the number of reports of suspicious goings on in the area. I've had a look at a couple of systems but the one that really stood out to me was a Hikvision IP setup with 4mp turret cameras. The image quality was excellent and some really useful features on the main box. The guy in the wholesalers that was showing me the system did say the problem with CCTV cameras is if a person that's up to no good sees the cameras they will just keep their head down and hood up if they are that determined . So I'm thinking about backing the main camera watching the front door with a ring doorbell for capturing face's The Hikvision system with 1tb harddrive and 3 cameras was a bit more expensive than some of the others but at £430 I reckon it's worth the extra Has anyone else had experience living with a Hikvision system? Cheers

    Replacement rear lights

    I think I'm going to get some modelling clay and make a mock-up and see if I can use it as a plug and take a mould of it

    ThanksThat's really helpful but like you said it was handy that you was planning to paint your Westy after fitting. I'm just a bit worried about cutting into the tub and making a mistake . can't see any way back if I make a mistake apart from a paint job . It also looks like you had to cut a fair chunk out of the tub to get them in So it looks like my options are 1 stay with what I've got 2 find a different style of light although I really like the halo effect 3 grow a pair and go for it

    Have you got any photos of how much cutting you had to do to the tub ? Also did you glass fibre the back of the new hole ?

    My plan was to trim the housing but to get the edge of the housing lined up with the mounting surface of the wing the inside light position will hit the tub

    Replacement rear lights

    Well I got myself a pair of light Pods and went to make a start this morning but it looks like I'm going to need a bit more than a bit of fettling, look's like I'd need to cut into the tub I'm guessing @Tim (TimDave25) - Joint Thames Valley AOhave you got wider rear wings than the older kit bodywork ? Looks like I'm going to need to find another  plan
