Hey Gang,

I was looking to fit a set of driving lights to my EF, along the styles of the NF Fairlane 'cornering lights'. Bought a damaged set of cornering lights off ebay to have a play, but they possibly came from a NL Fairlane and wont fit in my holes and my bar has no mounting points for them and they can only take a 21W Globe as well.

Has anyone fitted factory looking driving/running lights to their EF, and if so, what brand/make/model was used? Im trying to make it look as stock as I can, since there is a growing trend to knock off any modded Falcon where im from.

If anyone is looking for a damaged set of NF/L Cornering Lamps, let me know, edxr64l@hotmail.com (one is fine, the other has the plastic lens smashed off)

apparantly they dont fit the standard GLi futura bar, you have to fit a fairmont one. im trying to fit driving lights too but i want them to look standard. its proving to be difficult!

Ahh, is that what it is? Thanks, wasnt sure how many bumper bars there was. I just thought the lights came from a different model.

I was all keen for the idea of cornering lights, but since I drive on dimly lit roads, I need a functional 55W light as well.

What I was thinking is a set of lights I have in my shed, which are a 55W light with blue LED and replacing the blue LED with a white one, and wiring the white LED as a cornering light.....Might work, but they're not the exact size and that will really pi$$ me off....

Does Ford have a genuine part to suit the lowly Futura bar?

Frasers right, you need a Fairmont or Fairlane bar to fit them. And maybe high series BEM not too sure.

ya can get higher wattage globes for the turning lamps on the fairlane/fairmont, Hella part number D1245 is a 45 watt globe or ya can try a E1225 which is 25 watt.

light up pretty well

Aren't the cornering lamp lenses glass? I know the main headlights are polycarbonate....

I thought I read if you put too high a wattage bulbs in there they will melt the electrical wires inside.
