Ok, fitted the clear side indicators onto my Futura this morning.

THese are from a NF Fairlane, picked them up for $55 inc postage from ozeparts.com.au

As you can see what Fraser means when he says they dont sit flush. But I like them, I happy for a simple 2 min swap over.

F**k, that doesn't look as bad as what people were making it out to be, a new mod for next week! hehe.

Has anyone bought them from a dealer, how much? (I'm not a patient man)

Yeah, can always get the mouldings later on. I do like things to be close to perfect, so one day I would do that I guess. But I'm wondering about cost for the mouldings, and then getting them sprayed in my old polynesian green paint.

Thought of a few questions during dinner for this mod.

Is the standard EF flasher water tight? Is this NF/NL one water tight? (on the current mould) Do they need to be water tight, or is it okay for water to leak in? (just flow on through?)

So when you buy them do you buy them as a set of two, or each?

As i have been looking at ozeparts and yeah it doesnt exactly say its each side, or for a set of two.

No direct link as the URL doesnt cahnge but I will give directions...

Look for FORD -> FAIRLANE -> NF (or NL). Up comes a page. Look at Guard Flasher, White lense. Thats them. Right hand and left hand sides are interchangable.

From Ford the part number is NF-13K309-A. Buy as indivaul sets.

It sits up against the chassis but if water wants to get it I guess it will always.

Thats why I decided to put some photos up, everyone seemed a bit confused.
