MK2! This is a product that we have loved designing despite it's small and somewhat minor place in the grand scheme of a Defender build. MK2 follows the same format as the original with a few design tweaks to make it slightly slimmer and work with all Defenders. There are a few of the later PUMA defenders that have a slightly different capping on the corners of the tub, they are only a few mm larger but it fouled the original design (The product photos show the slightly larger capping and the clearance with the MK2 design). The new design takes this into account and works for every Defender tub.
The Far Corners STEALTH HD LED Numberplate lamp is our answer to the standard plastic jobby that we have gotten used to over the years, there is nothing wrong with the standard unit, it does its job pretty well when its not full of water and dirt, but its a fairly ugly lump of plastic that we felt deserved a rethink! Our numberplate lamp developed from a mod we were going to make to allow us to mount a worklamp from the standard numberplate lamp, but why not start again and design something rugged and multifunctional from scratch, plus this would let us change one thing that has niggled us for years....why is the numberplate lamp not centred on the numberplate!?! Housing a tough, totally sealed led unit in a heavy duty powder-coated aluminium body, we think our numberplate lamp is a better choice for those who use their Land Rover for what it was designed for, no need to worry if its working, or if its full of muck. You also have the option of mounting a worklamp, cb aerial, reverse camera or whatever you want on the sturdy top face of the body, obviously it all depends on the vehicle, a cb aerial is best mounted if you have a pickup to stop it whipping the body. The shape of our numberplate lamp is designed to deflect any collisions whether it be you loading items into your Land Rover or something falling off your roof rack...etc. The depth of the unit is only 25mm longer than the standard Land Rover numberplate lamp (80mm deep), we have made it this depth to allow accessories to be mounted but we have tapered the end both horizontally and vertically so that this extra depth does not cause issues. In order to fit the Far Corners HD Numberplate lamp, you simply unbolt your old one, drill out the existing holes to accept M6 bolts, then lineup the housing onto the body and mark the two bottom holes for drilling. You need to drill these additional holes in your Land Rover, this is so the mounting can withstand any additional weight you want to put on it, but we will be launching a SD (standard duty) version very soon that requires no modification.
