    Default Hella fog lights and nudge bar - installed.

    Cheers all!

    Doesn't even feel like winter today in Virginia, in the 60's! Installed the little "nudge" bar and finally put my good ole 550's to use...













    I've actually used the instructions from https://www.qpax.se/ (even though my bar is not made by them) that Reverend provided (thanks, great tip1)

    The depth of the hole from bumper surface to the metal re-bar is too deep to make the proper thread. The tool just does not reach deep enough. Drilled the hole, and used long 10.9 grade bolts to cut in and make their own thread inside the aluminum re-bar. Also used metal tube as "spacers" insert, cut to length. Very solid mount for the fogs.

    Nice installation, but aren't the lights placed too high to be really effective?

    Thanks! Quite happy with results! I like how these look and functional. As to the pattern - it is same mounting height I used over the years on all my Coupe GT cars. Not sure if there is any scientific way of measuring the output, but these cut through the fog like a champ!
