Paul, you might want to look at David Sheward's post under "Early vs. Late TD" on Dec 5. The image doesn't show the whole spotlight but what it does show looks pretty darned good.

Well...there is a lot of cool stuff you could pick-up at HF with that much $$$!

Sorry...couldn't resist.

FT27 was OE "fog" on early TCs and before. I believe it was followed by #462 in late TCs and TD

I run a Raydyot Hunting Lamp (never know when you might want to go "snip hunting" in the M.G.;-) and a pair of SFT Fog/Driving w/amber lens on mine. Having a "senior moment" and can't recall the #'s on the Fog / driving lamps off hand. (257-157?)
Actually have 3 "pairs" of these ...two others have the "clear" lens.
Paid way to much $ for them ....purchased before they started making re-pro's and were quite hard to find back then so the "real one's" feched quite a dollar.
