If anyone has a spare or can recommend the best alternative, I am looking for the headlamp and rim to complete my Dragonfly restoration. Many thanks

When I bought my Dragonfly it had a 7" Lucas headlamp fitted in a Miller rim. I recently purchased a Miller 7" unit from ebay and used the lense from the miller unit with the reflector from the Lucas because the Miller reflector was corroded. I think Miller units come up quite regularly on ebay. As for the rim, it looks pretty similar to a standard Lucas one (my lamp definately fixes into it in the same way), but it has an additional tag on outside on the bottom for fixing to the bowl, so I daresay adding a tag to a Lucas rim might work.
I hope that helps
