yeah... I'd love that, but the clears won't attract anywhere near the sort of attention dark tint on the lights will... on my car, the clears look kinda factory to someone that doesn't know fords.. but black tinted lights pretty much never look factory.

I should also mention that this car will eventually have an XR tail bar lip and sideskirts, as well as the EL XR/BA GT front bar currently in the shed getting glassed.. and the whole lot will be either shockwave or blueprint... (probably shockwave)

I hate clears, on all cars. But, the common theme here seems to be that they suit your colour, which I completely agree with! Looks tops! ;)

However, just a tip, and its only personal opinions here but I think bionic blue is the best blue ford have come up with to date, by a long (long, long) shot. If you were to respray in a different shade of blue, it could be another factory ford shade to look at? Anyways just my two bob.

P.S.

Clears on fords is disgusting and should be penalised to the full extent of the law ;p

But you have an excemption because it looks great! Can't wait to see more pics. Great car ;)

If ya really want to go stock, I will swap a roadworthy (perfect cond) set of EF lights for what you have. Pay for our own postage and we both win.
