I am thinking of doing the BA headlight mod to my ED wagon but have no idea where one would get the BA lights from or what to expect in the way of cost.

Can anyone enlighten me on both of the above?

Cheers
RD

Thanks guys

I'll ring around the wreckers, including FordPro, and see what they are asking. Damaged ones would be the go...

Loraz6: thanks for the offer but that would be sacrilege to tear apart a good set of Fairmont headlights!

Cheers
RD

Doh! Was just there looking for EF/EL Fairmont wheel nuts and forgot to ask!

I'll try Macarthur parts too, have dealt with them before - good bunch.

Not looking to pay too much, more of a want than a need so if it turns out too expensive I'll just forget it....

Cheers

Fordpro seem to pull random prices out of their a*** when you ring them but they have most parts you need.

Hmmm, I think the trick will be to find some damaged ones versus shiny good ones......

My suggestion is to ring smash repairers and ask them if they have some smashed ones they have replaced, you know, out the back waiting to be turfed out.
