10 amp will be ok for cornering lamps. I only suggest 20amp because if you ever decide to change them for driving or fog lamps you will need heavier wiring. This way it ready from the start.

My wiring diagram states brown wire no mention of a white trace.
Can you find a brown wire? I found it close to the head lamp assembly plug.

Okay, in that big a** bunch of wires there is a brown wire. Is that the one, can I cut in just there?

And as you can see inside the lamp there are no brown wires.

Till,
If you can wait, I am building up mine on the weekend.
Doing individual corner lights if the indicator and parkers are on, both on if the hazards and parkers are on or both on if the Highbeam is on. I will get an idea when I install where the best position to tap in is.
Cheers
Tony.

Well I'll be keen to hear how that goes.

But unfortunately I am a impatient prick, and I just want someone to tell me which wire! (for now)

You are right you wont find a brown wire inside the head lamp assembly. Its iin the loom that plugs into the head lamp assembly not the bulbs themselves.

By the look of the photo that brown wire looks like the likely candidate. Only way to be sure is with a test light and a needle. Unless of course you just want to cut it. If you have a test light use a needle to spike into the wire then earth the lead on the test light. Turn on parkers if the test light lights up you on a winner.
If you cut it, then turn on the parkers the park light in that head light wont work, again your onto a winner. If it wrong you'll have to repair it. Thats why I recommend buying a test light at some point.

Woot, all done. Only one operating now, as the other cornering lamp is a raped one I got off some dodgy d**k on fordforums.com.

But there is space on the relay for when I replace the cracked and rooted one.

Woot anyway.

O and thanks everyone for your help, appreciate it as per usual.
