Okie dokie,

On ebay, there's a mob selling these:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/FORD-FALCON-AU-X ... dZViewItem

to fit an XH ute.

Now, am I safe in presuming they would also fit an EF/EL if they fit an XH?

If not, why not?

XH would have different side pannels, it would be a cross between an EF/EL style front end to XF wheel arch onwards.
Your better off talking to rat, he's got another order coming in shortly. Or getting Fairlane style thick mouldings and fairlane indicator.

bit of double sided tape and it'd fit!

your fairmont ones though are in the moulding, unlike the gli/etc ones so doubt they'd fit snug in there

if the fairmonts already have them in the moulkding, then better off just getting a set off a fairlane theyre clear and fit in the moudling.

Thats EL Fiarmont they fit direcrtly, not EF as Amber has I beleive.

He says they fit AU, I think Fraser Found AUIII ones arent 100%perfect but close to it.

See, this is where I've had conflicting results.

I have a set on hold from Rat, but am told they won't fit the mouldings.

I'm also told NF/NL ones won't fit.

So what options do I have here?

Replace your very first peie of moulding that holds the indicator with one off an NF/NL/DF/DL, and there clear indicators. A small peice like that they'd prolly only charge you $50.00 to have sprayed in your colour!

Rat's ones *should* fit your car. From what I can see in your gallery, you have the same blinkers/moulds as I have. Here is a close up pic of mine to help ya out. These are the ones that rat sells 8-)
