Also I finally wired my fog lights to work. Wasn't EXACTLY the way I wanted to do it, but it works just the same.

(sorry lots of iphone pictures lately )

What I WANTED to do, was find two OEM plugs that matched the plugs coming off the stock fog lights. My Cibie fogs (for Modellista) came with a bunch of the harness so I was just going to cut the plugs off so that they would plug into the bulbs and stock harness just like the stock fogs.

BUT I couldn't find two of the male plugs. Ended up finding two female plugs though that are the same as the plugs on the body harness stock.

SO I swapped the male/female plugs on the stock body harness and stock fog lights, and put the female plugs that matched the stock plugs onto the Cibie harness.

My stock body harness now has the OEM male plugs, while both sets of fog lights have the stock female plugs. Meaning I can swap between stock bumper and Modellista bumpers without having to do anything to the fog lights besides unplug them.

And yes, it sounds confusing, so here's a couple pictures

Hopefully that makes some sense lol.

I would have spent more time looking for a matching male plug but I wanted to get it done before I had to go back to school. This past week was my last week so I just went with what I could get.

At some point I'll get an HID kit
