3/15/09 40,800 miles

Finally got around to mounting some fog lights in our 07 FXT sport

after looking at the choices (very limited - but preachers install was what I would have loved to do, just don't have the room with the sports front end)

I went with the smallest fog light package I could find.

ended up with the PIAA 1451 fog package

used the stock wiring, hacked off the stock connector and wired in...

picked up the oem relay and fog button through Jackie at Annapolis subaru

starting point


passenger side oem wiring hiding behind the sports front end


driver side oem wiring hiding behind the sports front end


bumper beam used for mounting the fog brackets


fog mounting bracket mounted to bumper beam


same bracket different angle


fog light mounted to bracket


fog light mounted to bracket front view


fog light confirmed working


#1 mod helper approves of fog light install


stock fog switch installed and illuminated with fogs on


sports front end back in place - fogs turned on


sports front end back in place - fogs turned off

aps 65mm intake installed

not too bad having already removed the milk jugs from both our 02 wrx and the 07 fxt.

tight fit, rubber hose wrapped bracket that is inside the fender (sir william noted his was rubbing on this bracket)

only other note is that it looks like i'm going to have to cut the fender plug for fit bracket that holds the aps intake against the inner fender.









spot where I need to trim the fender plug to fit with aps bracket

Ok here are a couple pictures of the tint...

not the best, just some quick shots to put up here for now

very pleased with it so far, it really changes the look of the vehicle (for the better)

for those wanting the vehicle lowered, i really like the current height for the winter snows. it takes a while for the plows to make it to our parts....
