Are you referring to daytime driving lights? or spot/fog lights ?

My old EF had two small foglights in the mounted in the lower grille gap between the number plate and bottom of the front bar.

I have put a pair of little Narva pencil beam spotlights in place of the valet lights on my Fairlane and modified them with HID bulbs. They work a treat, and they are aligned perfectly too, without any hard work. I will post some pics when I get the chance.

From what I have seen, the factory fairmont hole is a very odd shape. The hard part would be to get it looking like it belongs there.

That being said, I bought my bar second hand (off another member here) and he fibreglassed them into the bar...

This is my setup. It is a custom design and as far as I know, a one-off.
