On an GLi or Futura the headlights were wired with a low beam globe and a separate high beam globe. On Fairmonts and aboves while they had a separate high beam globe, the low beam globe was changed to a low / high beam globe giving doubling the high beam intenisty.

How hard is it to rewire the low beam globe on the low spec cars to a dual light globe? and has anyone done this change?

From looking at the wirining diagrams last night it appear the low and high specs cars both use the same electrical pin, but haven't checked on my yet.

thanks in advance

it'll be a lot harder than its worth. You would need to change the housing for the globe(low beam) so that it could house a h4. And then you might have an issue of the plastic going that yellow colour cause of the extra heat.

Another alternative is to fit the fairmont front on the vehicle...

If you want brighter lights, then get some of the osram(narva) 50+. They are about as good as you can get them without any troubles.
