Fog Lights

For Christmas i got a front valance with fog light holes and some fog lights. I just gotta figure out how im going to mount them, then arent the exact size, close but not exact, so there is a little gap around it. I was thinking about putting mesh or black plastic to fill in the gap. I am also thinking about using some kinda L shaped metal bracket, rust resistant, to mount the lights. Sound Good? Any Suggestions? Thanks.

I got a set of OEM Explorer fog lights from a JY for $5, had a sheet of SS laying behind the house from an old sandbox when I was a cut it up and made 2 brackets out of it. Bolted it up the factory bumper brackets, I thought it came out pretty good. Just throwing some ideas out there for ya. Good Luck!
