Anyone able to tell me where they got their clear side repeaters to fit their EL Ghia's to fit the 1/4 panel moulding???

I rang ford and they want $90 for two!

Seems a bit rich to me!

There is another option if your handy. Go buy some mitsubishi 380 side indicators and mould them in. Total cost is less the and of the other options

Bro, that was what I was meaning....... Are they different....?

Sounds funny, but I haven't even seen my car yet (I'm working away and a really good one came up, so I bought it sight unseen following a 'mate check' and an RAC check).

It's been a while since I have seen the difference between the NL and EL mouldings......

Anyone got pics of the differences??

Roj,

Thanks for the info..... So I have the correct moulding, I just need the right clear repeater lens!

Is Ford my best bet, or is there a cheaper option?

yes you ahve the right moulds all you need is the repeater. ford seels them at about $80 so your better of going to a wrecker or even pick-a-part im not sure on price but ford will be most ezpensive no doubt.

the moulding will fit any ef/el falcon, the nf/nl and ratmans look awesome - anything else looks horrid, and i'd rather keep the orange...

if you have a:
ef fairmont get the 1/4 pannel mould of a el ghia or fairlane & then get the stock el ghia or fairlane repeaters.
if you have a ef/el falcon buy of ratman.
