park lights on front clear blinkers!

ok guys.. yesterday i drove past an ef xr.. i noticed the small lighten up lights in the blinkers... like small square... i thought about it and said..hey why not try it on my beast.. this morning.. woke up bored as! i got the old amber one from the shed and expiremented on that, i had some light fitting.. like the ones that light up the rear number plate.. so i drilled a whole in the blinker from the back.. just above where the light for the blinker itself is.. "screwed the light in and connected it to the battery.. seemed to work fine, so i siad what the heck. i drilled a whole in the clear one on the car, hooked it up to the park lamps.. crossed my fingers and turned the lights on.. man it looked good! i turned the blinker on and u can still see the orange quite well.. so i went to the RH side of the car.. too lazy to take the light out and do it.. i thought it would be easier to remover the bracket from the battery and do it as the light is fitted.. as i was taking the battery cover off i snapped one of the hose fittings for the over flow bottle!!! although i had been wanting to get a new one for a while.. as this one is discoloured and looks like its about to fall apart... so not too worried..apart from the fact i gotta take a day off uni tomorrow to get a new one! it will cost around $80 so its alright.. but yeah anyways the lights in the blinkers came up really really good.. looks like one of those luxurious cars... the whole light from blinker to head lights jus gloes now.. also looks good when u have your normal head lights on too.. ill post picks next week hopefully..giv yas an idea.. .shit this is long.. haha jus too excited! give it ago man.. looks so different at night!

I love the look of the lights in the indicators. I saw an XR with it once, and concidered doing it as well.

Do the indicators light up nice and bright, or is it just a dim glow? Pics would be fantastic.

Also, just incase you haven't already, make sure it is sealed well so you dont get any water in the indicators.

Re:park lights on front clear indicators

I hate to break it to you but if you get the genuine clear indicators from an EB GT or ED XR6 they all ready have the park light in the indicator,I have a set and all I have to do it hook them up to the old park light wiring to make it look factory, everything else is already there,bulb holder,hole and wiring to bulb.

Re: Re:park lights on front clear indicators

With the genuine Ford clear indicators, does the parking lamp bit require seperate wiring, or is it part of the normal indicator loom?

Re: park lights

Yes ISA the park light has wiring with it but it is meant to connect to the factory wiring harness on an XR or GT.It does require wiring mods to be spliced into the factory loom.but thats only 2 wires.

Re: park lights

Doesn't sound too bad. I'm thinking of 'upgrading' clear indicators at some stage, though it's by no means a priority at the moment.

Thanks for the info. I guess that means that if he doesn't already, Rmyers could have additional parking lights just by altering his loom.
