Hi All,



One of the most annoying things on the S2 is the silver hook which anchors the headlamp in place, over time it scrapes away the paint underneath.



After searching the usual people in the UK, I ended up finding someone in Germany who supplies the rubber bed for each of them to sit in thus protecting the paint work underneath. Don't know if anyone else has found this solution but I thought it was worth posting!



Look under: spider 105/115, lights, headlamps,item 14.....

I just use little felt squares/rounds with sticky back peel offs. In hardware stores everywhere...

The pin on part 9 should not be long enough [ it isn't on my setup ] to touch the paint, the marking comes from the clamping force that tighting down the chrome pin. I use rubber washers found in the plumbing asile of the same hardware store the felt pads are in [ eww, preposition ]. The washers are placed under part 9 and give very nice 'feel' to the tightness you are applying. It allows sufficient force to be used while distributing force over a larger area, and are not really seen ( a plus from the beauty angle ).

But yes, there will/may be a mark at the Carrello->paint interface [smudge] with any solution, but it doesn't scratch...
