I just purchased a set of clear side indicators for my fairmont and am now wondering what is the best way to attach them to my car.

hi mate,

the indicator surrounds/moulds are double sided taped to the car.

Try see if you can find some 3M moulding tape, its good stuff. Any automotive grade double sided tape should work fine though. I used ADOS adhesive glue for mine, seems to work good enough as well but its messy s**t

^^ - Depends on what moulds you have fitted to the car.

From memory, EL Fairmonts got the same style mould as shown in the first post but had orange lenses, in which case you could just swap the clear ones into the existing moulds. EF fairmont's got a different styled mould which uses the more "triangular" looking lenses rather than the rounded ones.
