    1963-1965 Valiant owners, I am thrilled to announce that the parts gods have smiled on us in the form of an Australian man named Robert Morris. He has manufactured some truly stunning headlight trim rings. They are even better than original in that they are slightly thicker aluminum and therefore more durable while still fitting nicely and looking 100% factory. They are prepainted and ready to go, out of the box.

    I'm showing his next to a restored trim ring I bought recently to show the quality. The original is on the right in both pictures. Robert is courteous and professional and has always responded promptly to my messages. He's a fellow enthusiast who got tired of not having these rings available. They are $299 including shipping to the US which took almost one month to the day of shipping, but they are worth both the price and the wait. He occasionally lists these on eBay, but you can email him directly to order. He accepts wire transfer and PayPal (with a small service fee). I won't post his email address in a public forum, but if you PM me, I'll message it to you.

    Let me know if there's anything I can answer about mine. They are excellent and I highly recommend you get them while you can because I have a feeling they'll get snapped up pretty quick.

    Those're fantastic! $299/pair is very realistic and reasonable given what it takes to get a part of this nature made in this quality and in low volume. (Now watch, Layson'll offer to piss on our leg with 'em at $479/pair and tell us it's raining, LOLROFL.)

      I've been waiting to buy a set from Layson's for over two years now. They're always two months away. I saw them at the Nats and they were still two months out. Robert is awesome and responded to ever message I sent within 24 hours. Even through in a nice handwritten note thanking me for the purchase. Absolutely a pleasure to deal with.
