The GT had the spotties hooked up to the High Beam switch....

This is a little know fact Buuuuuut

The Spotties could be turned On by,
1) Placing the Headlights in Park, and
2) Pushing the Highbeam stalk forward will

Turn on the Spotties WITHOUT turning on the Highbeams or headlights.
(Pulling the stalk backwards will turn on the HIghbeams, Spotlights, and normal headlights).....

This is how I have my pissweak corner lamps wired up on mine

best thing you can do is find a aerial/demist/etc panel with an extra button and use that.....

I would really like one but before I go make a bigger fool of myself what would they be called. The middle switch thingy if possible and the panel with 3 holes in which they sit.

Any names for it all?

They are only around $12 brand new from Ford. As long as the one you need isn't obsolete. I believe the grey 2 switch bezel is no longer available but others are. I needed one for my car last year when a friend helping take the instrument fascia off broke mine in two :x The capuccino one I needed was available still.

BA fairmont ghia does not have a switch for the fog lamps, it just turns on with the head lights. of ya want a switch for ya fogs, get a ba xr series switch, should not be too expensive.
