Mounting the Fog lights. . .

Okay. . .so here's teh thing about teh fogs. As it is there is absolutely NO WAY to mount them. I've been thinking about ways to make them work but I'm pretty lost!!!

I dunno here are the photos.



Little holes for some kinda aftermarket foglights. . .


And the fog light itself. . .



Any ideas? Questions?

Hmm... one would think that since they are OEM fogs there would be some OEM mounting points.... sounds like it's time to start fabbing shxt.

Gorilla glue ftw! Lol just playin...

They're made for JDM Si's, however I wasn't expecting something THIS different.

I know I'll have to fab something up but I don't know where to start!

Yeah I can't really see what's goin on in there to well... If I had an '85 myself I would just have you send the fogs to me, I'm a CAD designer and I'm sure I could draft you some kind of template that you could just take to a fab shop or do yourself... but I would need the fogs and the right application =(. Sorry bro.

I know it's weird from the photos. I can do a drawing of what I'm thinking though.

I just need some kinda metal. Something thin but sturdy, I need to be able to angle it just right too.

Thanks to OGluden on PP for this image.

It was centered how i had it first i dunno what happened when I put it back on with two bolts. I'll make another tomorrow with better measurements and that should be it.

As you can see there's a bit of a step in there I dunno just how much a steel one would have to be bent to to make it work. I'm sure I'll figure it out though.
