Difference between NA and NC fairlane tail lights if any

Hey,

I went to get another drivers side tail light for the NC as it is cracked. I was wondering if NA fairlane tail lights are the same as NC fairlane tail lights as they guy at city ford spares swore bloody murder that they were different when I asked...can anyone shed light on this?

Also, if anyone has a spare driver side tail light in perfect condition they want to sell let me know!

Re: Difference between NA and NC fairlane tail lights if any

The taillights are both different. The NA has a darker set for the rear than the NC. Also, the NC stood out more than the NA in badging & signalling (braking and turning).

Stick with the NC rear rather than the NA, trust me. The NA looked a bit out of whack when comparing it to the NC.

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!

also the NC badges are set lower down on the lens Also NC lenses look like tinted clear lenses with red and amber lights inside whereas NA's were a red/amber lens

the NA ones wont line up properly on an NC as MADNC_8 has said. On the NA, the badging and the thick red reflective line runs through the middle of the tail light lens, where as it is set lower down on an NC.
