I had a recent 250 mile round trip to collect a replica ERA Turbo bodykit I won on Ebay for a decent price...


I need to know how to mount it and what lights fit into the recesses in the rear bumper/lower spoiler. I thought of using MG Metro rear lights for fog and reverse but can't find any for sale... at a reasonable price. The only rear foglight Iv found that would do the job is for a LandRover, but the supplier doesn't sell a rear light the same size.


I believe there are mounting brackets that might be needed but I can't seem to find any that would work. I did however think of using Tigerseal or similar product to stick it to the body but I think it might need more support than a PU adhesive.


Also what was the name of the wheels that ERA used....? I seem to like the styling of 13" Revolution RFX alloys or I might just stick with the 13" Supalights I currently have...

The wheels are Compomotive Trackstar 6 x 13” ET15.

The bodykit is riveted on. The cars were thrown together.

The Compomtives that you suggest look nowt like the ERA wheels...?

Was wondering how it attached, was going to Tigerseal it on around the arches etc...

Might need brackets fitting first to the kit and some bolts bonded to it too.

I had a sort of trial fit t'other day and it's ruddy tight to move, no flex in it at all...

If you look at the wheel dictionary 13" section and search for trackstar it's pretty specific:



The wheel used on the ERA Turbo, made by Compomotive.
Exact lettering: 'TRACKSTAR Made in england 6.0Jx13 D1360 ET15'. Under the centre cap is 'COMPOMOTIVE' cast in. Beware: later wheels did not have the exact lettering as above! ERA's were not equipet with them!

Rover offered an ERA style wheel back in the late 90s. I'd say pretty hard to find as I don't actually I can remember ever seeing any with them fitted when new.

IIRC the Rover wheel had a different offset. Never seen the Rover ones in the flesh
