After some advice ref rear lights. Body has three recesses each side and comes with two indicators, one fog, one reverse and two brake. What is everyone doing ref reflectors? One website seems to be another unit bolted on at widest point. Does anyone know of a combined unit the same size as those supplied, around 65mm?

Sid, The attached diagram is very useful and pretty much self-explanatory when it comes to the mounting of the rear lights on all kit cars for IVA. Note that there has to be a minimum 100mm gap between the rear fog and tail light lenses. Thus, in order to achieve this on the Replicar, the brake/tail lights need to be mounted in the outboard recesses, with the fog mounted in the O/S inboard recess (the reverse is mounted in the N/S innermost recess) and the indicators mounted between the two. Unsure of a combination rear light and reflector that small. Again, be aware of positioning of reflectors in relation to outside edge of bodywork etc.
Just been to get headlights and another red rear light to act as rear fog. Want the fog to match lights supplied with kit so took brake light with me. Explained fog needed to be IVA compliant, showing him the brake light I had. He advised he was not sure if the light I had was compliant? Stamped on it is 'designed in England' and what appears to be L488. I did read somewhere on the forum that the lights were changed by Mev on the early cars so assume the ones we have are ok. Any feedback would be appreciated
