It was just some spam - nothing to do with the thread. Moderator deleted it after Mart reported it.

Thanx for the reply Ken, but the fact that Deuce Lover sent him a PM, just
makes me curious as to what the OP wrote in his post ? "Ice Cream" ?

Some of the best ice cream available in Australia apparently according to the poster but had a link, more than likely leading to more spam, a virus or spyware....it was the first post by a new member, or attempted new member.

The 42-48 Merc parking lights are 29A, while the 42-46 Ford uses the 21A assembly, so they are not interchangeable.
