Hey guys great site here just got my BA and my first Ford too :) No more Hyundai for me. Anywho... I have a couple of questions.

My BA is a stock as a rock XT and I want to know if...

1. You can put the Fairmont Driving Lights in the Grill Down the bottom (I know its exterior but yeah I'll throw it in herE)

2. How hard is it to put the clock in from the fairmont too, and can Ford do it since its still under warrenty? Anywhere in Perth that will do it (Im hopeless at installing anything.

3. The Footwell lights, anyone finished that guide so XT with non premium sound can put it in?

Cheers!

yeah you can put the lights in but there is not brackets or wiring usually so you basically have to do the whole lot ( as you would with aftermarket lights)

i would imagine the clock would be easy enough to do.

as noisy said darren at ftg would have the gear and prices and know how to help you do it your self

Nice car brother! The BA looks good even in standard trim. Far improved over the AU. (Nice XR's, but otherwise........ someone get me a barf bag!)

As far as the clock thing goes, I'm sure Ford could put a clock in for you, but they would charge like a scrub bull. Try wreckers for one. All you would need is 12v constant power and earth. (oh and the clock)

...but what do you mean about warranty? They can't fix something that isn't there!

They're only there if you have premium sound.
