Hey guys,

Sorry if there was a thread on this. But it seems the Fairmont/Lane/LTD twin lights are now actually being produced by Twin Lights.

They seem to come to you black, then you get it colour coded yourself, or they do it. Anyway, colour coding seems to be the way to go.

Bit rich at $650 a pair, but this Fairmont does look pretty good.

Just thought I'd update incase anyone was interested in them.

Yeah i posted this up a month or so ago.

They look alright, IMO they dont really look quite right, and they definetly dont suit the NL fairlanes..

They look alright on gli-fairmonts though, but yeah a bit pricey for what they are.

I don't know, doesn't look bad, looks tough, but at the same time, just doesn't look right.

I think it's the grille that messes up the look. If a bonnet was modified to not have that great bloody chrome grille there it might look great.

i really like them, however i wouldnt pay $650 for them, i think more like $200 would be a reasonable price, considering you can get an aftermarket EL XR bodykit for $800.

you can get an XR body kit on a fairmont/fairlane? doesn't work mate, you need a new bonnet and guards plus headlights, you'd never get the whole lot for $800.

i like the look of the twin lights.

They look ok, but I think the front lip helps it a lil.

when i meant EL XR kit, i was just referring to the front lip, side skirts, and rear bar.

It needs a smaller grille is all, the EF fairmont grille or FBT grille would be heaps better!
