It's called a third eye. I don't know what years they came on wagons and stuff, but Brats came on them stock on the GL modes of the year 1982. You DO occaisonally see them in the junkyards, I've seen 3 in the same one a while back.

They're passing lamps. They operate only with the high beams on. Offered from 1980-1982 in GL's.

hee hee...

I refer to them as 3rd eyes (or in the case of my '81 brat, 5th eye) and you wink at someone before you pass them. i have one, but i don't intend to put it on the brat, A. because i like the huge logo on there now. B. because i don't pass enought people in my 1.8 to make the wiring project worthwhile. But they are unique..

all it takes is about 45 ft of wire, 23 ft red, 22 ft green, marine water tite fuse holder with 5 amp fuse, and a switch

the side lite makes it worth wile, and helps to fill in the middle, great for looking ahead for trails and deer

i stuck one on my 86 hatch, and with my 4 other square lights, that makes 5 up front stock =], more or less.

you can install them on any ea81, after you saw out the stock hood latch support, and bolt in the third eye, the holes are already drilled for you!:brow:

if you go to the gray bar above, and
click on 'Homepage'
then find "80s Subarus" along the left hand side, and click it,
at the bottom of that page is a helpful diagrams link.

one of the diagrams is how to wire the centerlamp with a DPDT switch....
