FOG Lights?

Fog Lighs on a 1985 Monte Carlo..... that's tough..

With all those round and Mitsubishi Eclipsy-lookin fog lights out there now, it's hard to choose one, they all look ricer-ish.

I can't find a nice pair that look like they belong on an american car... except for maybe certain ones that u can put on a 94 camaro, with the yellow lens that produces blue light.. those were nice......

but I'm not sure......--

anyone have any suggestions what kinda fog lights would look good and where? I guess on a monte carlo i'd have to stick em behind the grill for em to not make the outside of the car look dumb.

Yeah... what it is, is the guy refurbishes them or whatever... but they're 100% satisfaction guaranteed or my money back so u kno... they might have some scratches on the casing or the wires might be frayed here or there but that's nothing serious.... so for 20 bucks its a good buy being that they're 60 in the store.

Comes with the switch, wires, harness, all that good stuff

Sounds OK, Remember to wire up a Relay, and proper Fuse with that system or you could have Some Harness Issues...

Inspect the Wires Real Good on the lights to be sure you don't install any shorts!

Hey, my kid took a set of fog lights and an air dam off my 4x4 Suburban with a snow bank a couple of years ago. Anything is possible

No, he probably didn't make it, it takes a heck of an impact to break off fog lights and an air dam.

Yeah.... esp. on a 4x4...

And if he survived the crash, his father might have killed him afterwards.

Kid is still alive but he caused a much more serious accident later and will not drive any vehicles registered in my name again.
