Hi all,  I'm repairing the area under the headlights on my 13/60 , both sidelights/indicators were completely rusty and I'm replacing most of the metal around those areas , my question is - were the sidelight fittings angled back slightly , I've drawn a quick diagram to explain what I mean, at the moment mine are as in drawing B . but looking at several pictures of Heralds the do look to be angled back  as in drawing A . Can anybody confirm this for me  -  Thanks

B would be more correct for a 13/60. The confusion may be in the side light lenses and mounts, as from memory on 13/60s these were 'peaked' so they look angled, although the mount is flat.
