Ride: NF Fairlane Ghia

in the UK red wheel arch lights are legal as it helps the car be spotted side on

also im thinking the NF might work well with pure white ones or blue to match interior light on at night that turn on at a switch or when headlights turn on...gotta look at some wiring diagrams and see what possible and if they are legal to have on while driving if not ill hook them up to interior light switch and they will only work when interior lights are on a good idea when i unlock the car at midnight

but i cant find anything on if they are legal here in Australia i know neon lights under the car arnt legal to be driving around with on but what about wheel arch lights can anyone tell me ?

Hardly ANYTHING light wise is legal in this state (NSW) unless it was installed in the factory... proof of that is those LED lights at the front of every single Audi on the road as well as some commonwhores, should anyone else want those.... nope, ILLEGAL!!
Apparently it dazzles other drivers...(what a fkn joke) but not if it's one of those mentioned.

Double standards suck
