to be honest i think your car looks great! where abouts did you get the yellow headlight lenses, maybe a tow hook might look quite good on the front aswell?

thanks for the kind comments, i havent got any yellow covers yet, i just photoshopped it to see what it looked like. i think there quite hard to get but im pretty good and finding rare stuff,

and ive been thinking for gettin a towing eye but i cant decide what one to get...
the standard ones look a bit, well standard and the massive race ones look daft.

I did searches on :

Lucas Headlight Conveter
Lucas Beam Converters
Lucas Yellow Headlamp
Lucas Headlamp Covers

These are what seller usually describe them as, and are your best bet on finding a set :)
