Smile Cortina MKIII Rectangle Light to Round Light Conversion ?

First of all Hey and I'm new to the whole ford world,

Anyhow I need to Change the Head Lamps on the Cortina from Rectangle to 4 Round Lights is this conversion possible and if yes how ? If not why ?

(I just bought the car mind the paint job and the stuff it isn't gonna look like this after some months time)



Cheers.

Start going round the scap / breakers yards looking for Mk111 gxl's and get the lights , back plates , grille and relay . If no luck , sure you can adapt Capri lights to suit .

This is what you need for the round headlights .If you dont get the right back plates with the headlight adjusters on them , you wont get the lights aligned correctly . Will be shining all over the road and will fail an MOT test also .
