Soooo, mine is now wired from the bulb holder directly to the prongs at the bottom that attatch to the battery. (when I plug in the battery the bulb comes on... not as flash as all the others but will do!)

I'm crap at this kinda stuff :P

Cheers steve for the spare holder!

not going to bother with the livingstone one, the 14.4v is only £19.95 anyway so once you factor in the extra petrol cost and time wasted, would need to pick up tommorow and the utd v liverpool game is on, your looking at very little saving compared to my local argos lol

so if anyone wants a reservation number to pick up the 14.4v drill for £8.99 before monday, pm me and ill send you the number to get it (its the last in the store)

This is now a next months project for me, unless I sell more detailing goodies. Budget constraints till payday!

Also wonder how it'll work on my new silver car.

I just put together another one based on the 12v drill using a switch from Maplin. For anyone who broke the trigger switch the maplin one is brilliant - slots in nicely. The only thing is you don't get variable brightness. Here it is...


And here it is next to it's big brother.


I've only got the normal bulb in the 12v. Want to compare it with the Solux bulb.

Yeah that's the one, shame there's limited stock!! I must have been lucky!
A warning with the fittings at screwfix, It took 4 attempts to get one that was complete in the box, toe rags probably removing bits they want then taking then gettin a refund! Saying that it's probably due to the rather crappy area screwfix was in!
