#1 Are the flat-backed headlight pods handed (RHD or LHD)?

Hi, I wonder if anyone can give me some advice.

I have two of the flat-backed headlight pods new from a retailer and the sprung screws to adjust the direction appear to be for LHD, in as much that by screwing in the screw it will divert the lights INTO the path of oncoming drivers.

Are there two types? Sorry if this is a daft question!

On another issue, I am on the scrounge again. I need a dash top for my S1 OTS, I have a new cover for it but I didn't realise until today that there is a metal dash underneath to attach the demister vents to and support the whole thing. As you can guess my car was a basket case!

These appear to be unobtainable as a new part. Does anyone have one I can buy? Any condition as it will be recovered anyway. I would love to hear from you!!

Many thanks, regards
