Hi essextom, just check height on your pdf.. 180? I know a typo.. and like you say check all measurements again. I've gone 1mm bigger on the height to 113mm to allow for curves and I'll put a chamfer to allow bigger bead of sealant.
Will add pictures when done..I'm doing reverse lights first on my damaged light.

was going to update but i remember these are the acrylic sizes i started with, the 180 high amber pieces were to allow enough space to mould the double curvatures, it leaves a fair bit to chop off but makes the moulding easier.
