hey how much for a set of the small front lights that fit into the front bumpers of the ef/el's, the ones that came out on the fairlanes and lts.
im assuming you can buy them from ford but are there any after market brands that sell them?
also are they easy to fit and wire up?

Ford sell 'em for around $110 each :shock:

Go to super cheap and fit some aftermarket ones (not the same) for a third of the price

Plus theyll do something, the original lights are cornering lamps, and provide diddly squat forward lighting.

No lights are avialable that fit the vents properly, You will need to modify the vent to suit or get a small enough light to fity in.

^^ not quite right, he asked for fairmont ones, which are the cornering lamps, which do fit straight in.

but your right when it comes to EF/EL non fairmont/lanes

Just wondering what colour the highbeam wire is on the ED headlights?
