    I can't speak for the gordini's but I believe the early bulb holder had provision for a park light globe.
    On my R8 I got around the lack of parking lights by very carefully drilling a hole in the bottom of the reflector area and getting some small Edison globe holders from Jaycar. I "glued" them in place with sikaflex. 10yrs on, they're still good.

    These diamond tipped tile saws make a good hole in glass as well...



    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    Brian,
    The parking globe is mounted in the reflector. I can measure the distance for you on the weekend.
