OK, a local 6'er here in town did this and came up to my work to show me. It looked pretty good, and im debating wether or not to do it as well..

I have the brake light mod as well, im just not so sure about having 7 lights on when i brake, and 6 lights on when im just driving around at night. I think that might be overkill..?

What do you guys think?

Well I've been thinking of a way to do a "rear fog" light mod, I was trying to figure out how to have the brake light mod do both.. But this might be a good alternative... please elaborate when you have time. For me it would come in handy here in FL when we have those super-soaker thundershowers sometimes in the summer, better than driving with your flashers on..

I kinda like it but I think I would rather have them a bit dimmer to match the tails. Shellghost did the person have any info on how to install? Hope you can post some more info when you can Axion. Looks good.

Where did you/he get the lights from for the lower reflectors. I need fog lights there, I am moving to the UK and they require them and I don't want them to hang a light form my 6...

Thanks

Hmm in that pic posted above almost looks like the reflection of the camera flash rather than actual lights down there because its so bright and the reflector is so filled in rather than just a bright point in the center from a bulb. I think I've taken pics before of my car at night when the same has shown, sorta.. I could be wrong..

Well I'll start looking down there soon behind my bumper to see what lighting suggestions I can contribute to this idea.

I think that pic above was just a camera flash reflection..

Anyway this weekend I will probably be doing this, and will take some pictures for you guys since there seems to be some interest.

I don't think you will need the rear fogs if you are taking your NA car to the UK as a personal import, especially if it's only temporary. If you are going to keep your US licence plates or fit special military overseas plates their are exemptions under UK Construction and Use regulations that cover this.

I don't know yet, like I said all i saw was the finished product. I know he went and got some small red bulbs from wal-mart, and he mentioned some kind of sockets from the junkyard that came out of the rear of a camaro..

Thats all the info I have atm, will update it when i actually see how and what he used guys..

if it was a camera flash, then the back of the car wouldn't lbe in the dark, clearly the picture is taken without a flash
