Found these recently and not sure what they are. Any ideas?

The ivory coloured thingy has a VW stamp inside it. 

The rusty shell (light housing?) is unidentifiable.

Ed - what took you so long? I make that almost 3 minutes... Clap

I did wonder about the snowflake lens light but there doesn't seem to be any method of fixing the housing to the wing. I would never have got the indicator stalk though.

Hat tip to you Sir

kev.

It's strange that in today's world, a wealth of knowledge and experience is classed as sad unless it's about football, then it's awesome.

The internal fittings and bulb holder bolt to the wing then the part you have screws to that through the small round hole at the top.
