JDM foglights schmoglights..

So, as some of you may know, I'm never happy with having something that everyone else can just buy and pop on (i.e. G35 spoiler). I've always wanted fogs but not JDM's...dont get me wrong they're clean, and I didnt want just wal-mart "bolt on" fogs...so I started researching.

This involved basically making cardboard templates for our fog spaces and running around sticking them up to fog lights on many...many vehicles (100's possibly, lol). My wife thinks I'm sick, but she love's antiques...so we call it even, she has her antiques, and I have my "antique", lol.

The following is what I came up with, and dont get too antsy, all will be revealed, of what they are, whats involved, etc....but I'm not quite done yet. I'll do a full writeup for those who like it and are feeling froggy, but once I figured out it was gonna work, I had to share with you guys.

no they're not 5th gens and...no the bumper is not all the way on, so ignore the imperfect fitment



More to come in the following weeks...thanks for looking.

Thanks man, we'll see how it turns out, but I think I'm on a roll! BTW can you take the "I'm new" off my header, I may be technically, but c'mon, I've been doing this longer than this site has been around...lol.

yeah this one should be a little less intense than the spoiler (still not complete), but then again, I havent tried to figure out the bracketry yet

Ah well...not gonna get much done this weekend, next week if I dont freeze my hands off, supposed to be in the 20's for highs Mon/Tues, yuck!

Re: JDM foglights schmoglights..

I SO glad somebody thinks like me. Thats actually exactly what I was looking for lol. I was going with 90/91 Cb7 accord fogs for a similar route, but never got it done before the wreck. These look to be a little narrower. Good job!


I always love that look, looks MORE stock than the JDM ones. Round ones look cheap, IMO.

CB7 would've worked nicely I think...but finding them, much less affording them...sheesch! yeah, I think it'll look pretty clean by the time I get it done. Weather is supposed to be crappy this week, but we'll see what I can get done.

Re: JDM foglights schmoglights..

I have two sets lol. I have a sedan and I HAD a coupe that wrecked. So I had the extra set from the coupe sitting around lol. They aren't too hard to find, the guys over at cb7tuner tend to have some up for sale quite often. You are right about pricy though lol. I'm actually trying to sell my extra set since the lude got totalled and I don't have any use for them anymore lol.

Re: JDM foglights schmoglights..

Maybe this is too ghetto for your taste but have you thought of just using 3M double sided tape on the bottom and top of the light to hold them in? Just an idea. Saves the hassle of making a custom bracket and drilling, etc.

yeah, pictures dont tell the whole story. They are slightly larger than the opening, so they fit behind the bumper and will need to "float" back there. I'm gonna go do laundry now to warm up the garage and work on it some (its 8degrees here, wind chill of -13!) and my dryer vents to the garage

darnit, I wanted to be like "never satisfied", "old fart", "grandpa 'lude". Oh wellk, guess I'll just have to post some more updates for this and the other projects....and I'm off!

edit: sorry kids, I cant handle a high of 28 in my garage for too long! Pretty sure I figured out the mount, now just need it a little warmer.

I MIGHT be getting another 4th gen this weekend, so I might use the cb lights afterall. Still, I think what you're doing looks better and I may wait for the reveal lol.

allright so i take it the fogs are done now right? So go ahead and boxem up and ship em to me
right cuz the weather here in okla is sooo great for working on cars right now, I can't even get it up to freezing in my garage! and thats with the dryer running and two space heaters!
Dont worry, not abandoning it, just want to keep my fingers from freezing off, figure it'll be an easier install that way!

yeah we got 8-10, but the drifts are what are totally crazy! and more coming tomorrow!

Alright, here we go kids, hold on tight! I've had a little time to work on this and there is a lot more "engineering" than I had anticipated. So here is the first part of the "write-up". I hope someone else is inspired by this and maybe finds easier way to do things, but this is what I've done so far:

The great unveiling, drumroll please...the are E36 fog lights (a.k.a. BMW 3-series). This is the DEPO set w/ wiring/relays/etc. HOWEVER, do not let this fool you, their wiring harness does not include the wiring to plug into the back of the fog lights! Yeah, how stupid is that?!




Bumper cut outs for fogs:




Channel chop of the rear of the fogs:






Pic of test fitment (as seen before):



Brackets I'm using:



Modification of those brackets for mounting:



Modification of fascia (with a hammer) for plug fitment:




More updates to come, slowly but surely! Thanks for lookin'

K
