Yes... where can I get some, what should I pay, how hard are they to install (not wiring, just fitting)?

try ebay and ford wreckers.. they usualy start at about $80 for a pair and get up around $160-$180 in imaculate condition.. Behind the light has attached 3 mounting legs with thread on them that you simply put a small hex nut onto.. -easy as with the plastic tyre guards removed and the front wheels turned at angles to get into the front guards a cinch..

Mm mm, wouldn't mind a pair of those in my ef. Would they fit?, i just don't like the holes that are there atm. Ive filled them with the super s**t auto mesh, but it looks kinda tacky. Are they easy to wire?

They are not Fog or Driving light but turning lights. They are intended to light up on the side that you turn when your indicator is on. No aftermarket lights that I know of fit the holes in the Faimont bar.

Sorry Jared, they will only fit like a glove on Fairy's and higher. I had a Gli and it was a no go.

I can get them for $150, which is one brand new and one second hand. One of the site sponsers also stocks them I believe (Ferntree Gully Auto Salvage).

They aren't as bright as driving/fog lights. Mine are wired to come on with the parkers, and IMO are more for looks than anything else.

Unless you put the lower half of a Fairmont front bar onto a Futura/GLi/XR.
