I dont know what exactly its called but its the part that goes around the side indicator.
I've got an EF Fairmont so i dont know if they are different to GLis. Looking for a white one for the drivers side.

The GLi mouldings are different to the Fairmont. The GLI only had a thin plastic seal type thing whereas the Fairmonts and some Futuras had a full size moulding. I still have the pair I removed from my EF Fairmont when I put the NF ones on but 1) they're Argon Silver and 2) they were kinda warped during the removal process so I wouldn't feel right selling them or even giving them away.

This is mine with the original indicator surrounds on it:

I still have them but they got kind of warped during removal and I don't know how well they'd fit now.

You could always replace 'em both with NF/NL moulds ;)

We used boiling water to loosen the tape enough to remove the moulds (part of the reason they're now warped) and then petrol to remove the gunk left behind. The latter isn't the best product to use and it's highly likely there's a better way to do it but we just used what was available.
