I have got the clear indicators in my ED and was thinking would it be legal to put the park light bulb in it like the XR's do.

Guess my main concern would be legality, there would be no park lights in the headlight but they would be there.

I dont drive with just my parkers on anyway so you may not even notice.

Another conceren i think might be moisture getting into the headlight, though i guess this could be solved by some sort of rubber/plastic "bung" in the hole and taped/siliconed in.

All comments/suggestions welcom and appreciated.

p.s. has anyone already done this? if not do you think it would actually look ok?

i did this about 4 years ago to my old mans ea and then to my eb a while back, never had any water leaking in, if they are after market blinkers you can see where the bulb is 'suppossed' to go, i just drilled a whole and got some park lights from guards off cars at the wreckers and wedged them in and connected them to the park lights. they look good when they light up, and when the blinker comes on you can see it fine. its worth doing it.

Cheers guys, i reckon i might do this then when i get a chance.

I was thinking about just taking the park light out of the ehadlight and putting it in the indicator but your idea BOSXR8 is probably better, so leaving the one in the headlight plugging up the hole just not connected.
