    Default Cantalupi Dallas Light Fittings (as fitted to many Fairlines over the years)

    At some point I will change my existing halogen bulbs over to LED's and suspect I'll break a few of the fittings in the process. Having one or two spares would be useful anyway.

    So does anyone have any spares that they'd be willing to part with?

    Probably easier to make up some alternative spring fittings

    I bought some fittings the same size from coastal rides which went in the master and then freed up a supply that i could use to fix the broken ones.

    I dont think you can make up new springs.

    The springs slot into some very very soft metal lugs that break. I would guess that they break after 3-4 removals - which is not a lot of lightbulb changes. There is no obvious was of replacing these lugs.

    Poor design.

    Alterative is silicone - but then you cant get them out again!

    I'd definitely want to use the existing bezels as they seem to be of good quality and corrosion resistant (unlike the crap they fitted on my Targa 30). I could of course cannibalise gold fittings if anyone had some of them in their shed.

    I bought some original Cantalupi Madrid fittings last year (in the heads on T34) from www.improducts.co.uk at a reasonable price, worth checking with them?

    I'm in contact with a potential UK importer of Cantahowever you spell it, and they are on the point of opening an account with them. I'll ask if I can pass their MD's details to you (he's in Italy at the moment) so you (and I) can encourage. Is that OK? Can you let me know, please?

    They also have all the bulbs as well, so it was a good find when I found them last week.

    I too have purchased replacements through ImpProducts. Agree poor design as the internal btass or whatever becomes brittle and the lugs hding the springs bteak off. Bit expensive so option 1 - saw into the side of the hole so as to create new lugs... just a few mm... to hold the springs; option 2 - fix a metal strip inside to hold the brass tube together and replace the lugs for holding the springs.
