thanks.

Best thing I found is to go to a Pick and Payless, and rip into all the Cabs they usually have there. The Globes being in the dashboard in the centre tend to be fine, and not over-used.

I salvaged about 20 globes, (and grabbed plenty of Dash globes while there) all for the price of entry.

Try to get them from most Wreckers or Ford and you'll pay too much

The inst cluster low level bulbs - fuel, volts, oil press, etc will fit also.

Pete, get yourself to Yallah - they are moving, and throwing a lot of stuff out.

They do fit if you have the removable type globes and holders.

I found that my globes were fixed in to the holders (like the Blue coloured dash globes) and couldn't be changed (early EL build) without the whole holder assembly

I think you're picturing the globes that sit in a row along the bottom of the cluster.
With the demist/antenna lamps, there are no removable bulb versions - the bulb leads loop around the base. The inst cluster low level bulbs - fuel, volts, oil press, seat belt are exactly the same, so you swap the whole assy.
