There are no clar side indicators for the EF or EL, unless you have the high series door moulds, in which case the NF (?) one may fit. SOmeone else on the site got some clear lenses made up, but i cant remember who. The other option is to use some off of an AU (?) or maybe even try some of the commodores. Though i have no idea which model would work. Would be good to see something useful for us coming off of the commodores but

also the rear lights? this is a personal opinion, but i hate the amber indicaters, i'd change them over for EF/fairmont rear assemblys, look much nicer imo.
but very sweet ride! :)

there was a thread started about the clear side indicators for EF/EL's - some guy was supposed to be making aftermarket ones, and there were a few email address given etc, but i dont think there was ever any final decision made as to if you can get them or not.

another option is the AUII clear side indicators - have a look in my gallery, thats whay i've got fitted to my EF :wink:

as everyone else has said, lower it, clear indicators, keep the simmons, and that would be it, it's a sweet looking ride anyway.

nup haven't replaced the mouldings - personal preference, but i prefer mine without them - i want the car to look pretty clean & smooth, and the mouldings removed fit that image i want.

lol as for the washer jets - go see fraud for them - you'll be lucky to get change from $25 for the pair! :shock:

I was thinking of tinting my side indicators... Only problem i was thinking was the cops.

Do you think it would be something they would pick up on easily??

You can get them to fit without the moulds, just takes some persuasion
