Why do you have a persian rug on your garage floor?

in regards to this mod
if you cut a bit off the clip on the au side indicator, you can fit them in the forwards direction
it looks *heaps* better.

Yes - but that requires painting the body mould again... from the big chip in the paint that was caused by the panel beater who glued the orange side indicators to the car.

I bought mine for $13 each and they are the genuine Ford items made by Hella. Fitting them was really easy, I just cut a bit off the loop section then shaved off 2 of the 4 tabs on the bulb holder then put it all in and it looks brilliant.

With the clear indicators that sit beside the headlights I just bought aftermarket items and they fitted straight in....And they came with the amber globes too. Alot of people have said in the past they they often get moisture inside them but I've never had that trouble.

The doco that I wrote on this should be back in the doco section shortly (like maybe on friday). I just have to convert it all the HTML, and then we're on our way!

Clear indicators are probably one of the easiest, cheapest and best looking external mods you can do to an EA-ED.
It was one of the very first mods I did to my EB along with an XH snorkel and Pedders lowered springs.
Yep.....I'm pretty happy with my car :D
