Has anybody done this? I remember reading a while ago that some cutting will be involved....

Want to swap them to a mate for a DVD player and I'm hoping I can get them to fit his bumper well...

AFAIK, the vents on the GLi are a completely different shape to the vents/cornering lamp mounting positions on the Fairmont/Fairlane front bars. When you look at the Gli front bar you'll see how the vent is kinda recessed back into the bar, whereas with fairmont/fairlane the vent/cornering lamp sits flush with the front bar

Top is EF GLi, bottom is Fairlane/Fairmont

To be honest i dont know if they could be fitted to a EF GLi bar, based on how the bar is moulded around the vent. By looking at it, it would be near on impossible to get the cornering lamp to sit flush with the bar seeing as the whole area around the vent is recessed into the bar if you get what i mean.. It would be best to check in person how much of a difference there is in that area and go from there :wink:

In saying that, an EL GLi bar could possibly be modded to fit the lights as they have no vents in the corners like the EF Gli does.. But then again its not an EF, and you wouldnt want your mate to change the whole front to EL GLi spec so its irrelevant :P

Shapes are completely different, best bet is to fit spot/fog lights in behind the EF bumper and have them shining through the vent... so it might be best to sell your lights and buy the dvd player off your mate?
