G'day Guys

Just wanted to know whether cornering lamps from the EL Fairmonts, and the NL Fairlanes would fit straight into the vents on my EL XR6 bumber?

If so, do those vents just pop straight out or do I have to cut them out?

I know that the vents pop straight out in the Fairmonts and Fairlanes, but the front bumper on the XR's are different.

Thanks

Peter

the vents pop out the ef bumpers too but they are a different shape to the fairmont/fairlane ones so the cornering lights wont fit

Nope, everything on the front of the fairmont and fairlane are the same. (bumper, headlights, bonnet)

ok so the bumber between the fairmonts and the xr's are different, therefore the lamps wont fit.

any suggestions as how I can do this mod then? or has anyone done this mod on their EF/EL xr

Thanks

I think the whole shape of the bumper vent is different to the actual lamp shape so i think you couldn't fit it on because of that reason. Unless someone else can shed some light. It probably involves a home DIY to fit. :mrgreen:

I've seen people sit the cornering lights behind the brake ducts on the XR bumpers. Check out Stevo (I think that's his username here too) and also Sikazz who have both done it.
