You might be able to fit Hella Comet FF75s in the centre lower section ... might have to cut one slit out though.

Something similar to the fog lights I have on my AU.

Why don't you just get the factory Fairmont Ghia ones.

I think the factory Fairmont ones are only 5w globes ... nothing more than position lights.

depends on the type of globe in it in the first place and if it is interchangeable.

I don't have a manual handy to check it though ... maybe someone with a BA Fairmont GHIA might be able to shed some more light on it though.

When the BA's were first released they were driving lights, but the were not ADR approved so ford recalled every car fitted with them and replaced them with cornering lamps. (different loom, new lights with different angled reflectors). I think you could still wire them up as driving lights though :D

Sure of course you could, however with a cornering lamp reflector in there how good would the beam be?

Be nice to pick up a set of the original driving lights.
