the lights Tickxr is referring to are made by a company called twinlight, they do the XR style lights whilst retaining the rest of your front end, so you keep the lane grille bar bonnet etc but get the twin lights at the front, they aren't a bad option and if you source the lights yourself can be quite a bit cheaper then an XR conversion


Thanks svd115 do you have a pic of theese lights installed on a falcon?

i might see if twinlight have a website.

if they look good i may go down that road

thanks for your reply

Josh

Yeah i have seen the website and have included a pic of them.

i will need to cost the XR front bar and EF GLI bonnet ect and of course painting before i make a decision

i agree with you EFFII a full modded xr body kit would make it look like a beafy XR

Also have for sale a complete aftermarket EL XR Body Kit in primer ready to spray, looking for about $800 ono for the kit, which includes the front lip, side skirts/door pods and rear skirt...


im getting the guys number for you...should get it in the next few days.

if you got that all you would need is a bonnet lights and xr bar.
but to make it even more unique use the lower half of the fairmont bar with the top half of an xr bar. so you get to keep your lamps...

You will need to use the modified XR sideskirts and door pods designed to fit on a station wagon as the standard XR sideskirts are too short due to the longer wheelbase that the fairlanes and station wagons share

There is no rear lip that will actually fit the fairlanes rear bar though as they are quite bit longer than standard rear bars so would need to get one custom made to fit

I agree with EFFII about using the fairlanes bottom half and XR top half of bar if you were going to take this route though, would look LOT more classier than standard XR front bar

That kit won't fit EFFII - Here's why

Image

You need to use the kit for the wagon as you can see how the skirts are longer behind the rear doors than the normal sedan version to accomodate the longer wheelbase

I could be wrong though about there being no rear lip to suit as AWC seems to have one listed but there's no pic of it so i would be ringing to make sure these will fit due to the longer rear bars on Fairlanes than standard

Here's link to the actual kit you will need on AWC (Fibresports) site

http://www.awcinfo.com/secureshop/category.php?cat_id=79

Hope this helps

I know those side skirts wont fit, i was under the impression he would mod them to fit.

I didnt know you could buy off the shelf extended skirts like that for the wagon and obviously they will fit the lane.

You taught me something today :lol:

Thanks for your help with sourceing the xr front EFFII although i would like to focus on the T5 conversion first.

I have done my first mod on my Lane today and i will post it on here with pics later on tonight.

Till then

Josh

Hey guys, I performed my first mod today!

Have a look at this

Before
Image

After
Image

Well you guesed it I have back lit door handles!!
Ill run ya through the mod.

I needed a hot glue gun to glue the LED's in the door handles and i got this little beuty at the local hardware for $19.00.

Image

And a few other things

Image

I started by soldering the the resistors to the LED's

Image

This is how they turned out

Image

Then I solderd the wire to the resistors

Image

Here they are all finnished and with shrink tubing on them

Image

Heres a pic of the LED's hot glued to the door handles

Image

This is the wire spliced into the curtisy lamp wiring behind the door trim compleat with shrink tubing

Image

All tidied up

Image

This next pic shows how ive cut the wire and put in spade connectors, notice i made them with 1 female 1 male on each end so you dont plug them in the wrong way. i also added shrink tubing. This is done so for what ever reason you can take the door handle off the car

Image

And some more of the finnished mod

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

I also had a few casualtys
The passenger door snipper appears to have been repaired at some stage before i bought the super saloon. I put the trim back on without it untill i get another

Image
Image

And the plastic rear window inside cover got broken in 3 places but i forgot to take a photo but here is a pic of it glued back together (just temporary untill i get another) I used loctite 406 its an industrial super glue used for making O-Rings from O-Ring cord.

Image

Details of this mod are found here if you diddent already know.
