Post Reverse/Back-up Lights

Anybody have any suggestions for some out of the way and/or decent looking back-up lights.

I thought about using one or two fog lights with clear lenses and hide them up under the rear of the car. These should shoot enough light out for when backing up.

I don't have to have them, but thouht it would be a good idea.

Thanks

How about hidin one of the small drivin lights off a new car?? Maybe a tab up under the frame and paint it frame color. Or get real trick and put it on one of those retractors like they use on a marker plate with a electric vac switch(you could make one out of a/c door actuator),it would be gone till yah put it in rev. Man we have to much time on our hands here in the northeast during the winter.LOL

70's Honda cars used a small version of the fog lights and worked well for years, if they don't put enough light out put in a brighter bulb.

How about using back up lights off a late 60's era vehicle. The '67-69 Camaro bodies had seperate back up lights. If you can't find any to salvage, Classic Industries sells all the pieces parts fro the Camaro lights. Check them out at <a href="http://www.classicindustries.com" target="_blank">www.classicindustries.com</a>
