I had those fogs and I found them to be useless.
You need to clean up that wiring job. It looks temporary.

Very nice! :cool:

Did you adjust the aim of the fog lights before you put the bumper back on? Can the fog lights be adjusted with the bumper in place? :confused:

If you haven't done it already, I'd recommend filling those push on wire connectors with dielectric grease to keep any water from getting to the connections. The easiest way to dress up your wiring is to use split wire loom, also called convoluted or split tubing. A lug on that ground wire would give you better grounding & look better. :wink:

i eye balled it for the aim and then i can reach in and tweak it once the bumper is on ... its not ideal but with the space allotted its all i can do lol

i understood everything you said except the lug on the ground wire thing (what is a lug?)

Wire loom can hide a multitude of sins. The reason everyone is giving you so much flack for it is because bad wiring will burn your car to the ground. Loom everything, use eyelets on your grounds, and use grommets on any wire that goes through metal. When I was doing big stereos, it was pretty common for kids to burn their cars to the ground with bad wiring.
