Spotties/Driving Lamps to fit EF XR6?

Are there driving lamps or spotlights that will fit nicely into the Brake duct slots in the front spoiler for a EF XR6?
I am needing a part number or store to purchase from as I live in Scotland and need to get stuff sent over.
Thanks if you can assist

There are no factory ones, UKXR6 so I would advise shop around locally for some aftermarket ones.

Re: Spotties/Driving Lamps to fit EF XR6?

Many thanks outback_ute... To be honest, for a country that made major developments to the car industry over the years, Britain is a hard and expensive place to own or mod your car in any form. The boy racer stuff is out there off the shelf, but the services associated with Imported cars is slim. There just not into making mods as much as in the Southern Hemisphere. Even the local ford garage cannot service the veichle correctly as they have no part numbers and tech info for it, ( strange that for a company with the same name ) ...so I have been relying on service manuals and the internet to try and get info.
Dont mean to write a novel... but as far as the reaction goes with the ol XR6, its very funny!
When guys see the XR6 badge they ask if its a 6 cylinder, and then try to guess the size of it. Most ask is it a 2.6 or 2.8 ....So when I drop in its a 4 litre most of them freak and its not till I pop the hood that really believe me!.... Gas is very expensive over here and heavily taxed, still I am surprised at how economical she is really for all that grunt. I had a XF panel van (carb) in NZ and that sucked more juice.
Tell you what though, it makes me jelous to hear all the boys talking about going down to the local wreakers yard and picking up another diff or whatever. That mate would be heaven!!!
outback_ute... if you or any other lads know of a good mail order parts company, could you please let me know of it?
Anyhow, cheers for the relpy, I will try and source some lamps that fill the gap as best as they can...

You can get the Fairlane cornering lamps that fit in the holes, but will need rewireing to use as fog/driving lamps.

Re: Spotties/Driving Lamps to fit EF XR6?

-AL- she costs me 50 to fill up, which is about AUD $120.00
Next time you fill up think of me!
....... Is all comparable I guess with wages and prices.... Fuel is at about .78 pence per litre.
I dont really have any photos of landmarks but here is one from last night when we had a bit of hail and snow!... Poor ol falcon, she cant be liking the fact we are going into another winter.
The car was imported by Tickfords director at the time, back in `95 and when he retired he sold it on. I have had four falcons now, and just had to have a piece of home, so when i saw it up for grabs, I grabbed! Although she is a tidy wagon 173,000 , there is not alot of market for them here as no one knows what they are, or is prepared to source parts from the other side of the world for it.

TIKFD6 - what model fairlane are we talking about for the lights?? do they fit in well, or is there alot of mucking about to do?
Cheers, UKXR6
