A buddy and I looked at it, did some measurements, and played with a flashlight ,etc. to see the light pattern. And we didn't like the way it was turning out.

I'll eventually be putting some off-road lights on, prob. put them in the grill. When it comes time for that, I could always swap'em. Not that I got 'off-road' but I do drive down dark roads, and drive at night a lot.

I thought the fogs looked decent enough on the outside.

I also put those chrome bolts in, where the license plate holder went.


---

We ended up having to put heat, via blow torch, on to the chrome to soften it just a bit. We tapped it, and it would not hold the tap. It was hard as rock. Took the drill to it prior to heat, and it just kept skipping around and wouldn't dig in no matter how slow we drilled.

(The chrome looks ok so far!.)

Thanks m8.

A trip to ACE hardware trying to match up chrome bolts and nuts, flirting with the counter girl, and then having to search for more bolts and nuts in the shop, when you open up the box, and were given wood screws, gets a bit frustrating.

But I think the end product was worth it.
