OK

so everyone knows a bodykit with holes made for foglights, but doesnt have foglights in those holes is just freakin gay. so heres a little simple diy to make your car look better for all those bodykit fans. oh that and if i see another kid with a bodykit with empty foglight holes, im gonna flip the fuck out.

MATERIALS:
-sheetmetal screws
-brackets for foglights
-foglights (duh)
-loctite
-misc hardware for foglights, etc
-screwdriver
-drill (to make pilot holes)
-hands
-brain optional


STEP 1:
remove front bumper. if you cant do this without instructuon, chances are good you shouldnt be working on cars. just kidding. just in case though, heres some tips.






STEP 2:

Find something to use as a foglight bracket. I have connections :ninja so i got these made.



if you have to make your own, no worries. just find and bend a peice of sheetmetal as follows:




STEP 3:
Ok, at this point your car should look something like this:



now you have to measure where the foglights need to go. measure how far up, down, and side to side the foglights need to be placed. use drill to make pilot holes in the bumper support, then screw in screws with loctite if you want. Then youll be like this:




STEP 4:
measure where the foglights need to be placed. install foglights. i forgot how i wired mine, and im too lazy to go look so ill post it up later.




Step 5:
install bumper. i did this diy to tighten up the little gaps. you should too.

the result (after a long winter with my shitty oem bumper):




Step 6:

your car looks really nice, especially after the gap removal DIY thing...I just did that today, and it didnt work out as well as i was hoping, i have had huge gaps underneath my headlights since i got blackouts, and on the side along the fender didnt match up that well either...

anyway, yours looks great!

I think it looks nice. In my opinion, I don't like the mesh tho. Not saying I would leave it open...I just don't like it. But looks good. :number1
