Hey guys, as the title reads I recently purchased a pair of NL indicators (plus moulds). Well the moulds aren't poly green, so temporarily I want to just have the indicators in my Fairmont moulds with double sided tape. Now some of us have seen pictures, they don't fit perfect (put look okay I think). Question is, is it a problem not having that area water-tight? Is there anything important back there that needs to be protected?

Cheers guys.

O and P.S., got the mould + indicator for $27.50 a pop (each), good price? Also got a Fairlane dome light (main interior light hub thing) for $27.50, good price?

I posted up those photos, they'll be on here somewhere. No issues at all. They are held in by clips, not tape.

If you've got fairmont mouldings then they will go straight in, no gaps. No need for NL mouldings.

What is the best way to paint the moulds?

the mouldings are very different - you won't get NL indicators onto a fairmont mould & have them sit flush.

Say what!?!?!

Take a look at the pic, NL clear indicator in EL Fairmont Moulding. No gaps fits exactly like the original. Or are we talking about two differant cars/differant mouldings here?

ah - well, EF Fairmont mouldings take the standard EF Gli/Futura/XR side indicator - they don't fit the NF/NL one :)

so we're both right! lol

i agree with Max... mine are in the process and i was a little concerned myself with this issue but got the assurance all will be good :P

ummm $27.50 with the indicator is heaps good... i didnt get anywhere near that price 3months ago! (try 3 times that) but yeh i ended up getting them cheaper than 27.50 also :D
