I came across a random bloke today who just happened to have a set of XB GT driving lights he didnt want anymore, my lucky day :D .

I want to know how far away from the edge of the normal light the driving lights were mounted in the XB GT's.

Also, the reflectors in the lights have lost their shine and have turned into a patchy green colour, I was thinking of getting them chromed, does anyone see a prob with this?

do the lights have the brackets with them as well??? IIRC the holes (or pilot dents) may already be in the radiator support panel

if your car is a GS, it *should* have the holes as the driving lights were standard on the GS's

do you have a GS/GT grille?

There are pilot dents to screw the light brackets to. Just drill them out, then attach your brackets and you'll be able to work out the position of the spottys in the grille
