So now you can see in the fog if you're going backwards? lol


Those look good,nice and slim. They're so handy to have especially if you're hooking up a trailer in the dark or trying to back down a long dark laneway or something.

i've been thinking of doing something like this too, i want to get a pair of work lights from a local distributor, cut the appropriate opening in each side of the rear bumper, and mount them there.

as for the electrical side of it, i would use a three position switch so i have off, on and auto (with the factory backup lights).

nice work!
