    POPO warned me with the original. Do not want to call attention to that part of the car any more. Especially with a lite up one now. I got two tickets earlier so I am under probation (thanks to lawyer) and cannot get any tickets or the other two will go on my record.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    Here is some help for those of you wanting to wire the lights to your Fogs:

    DISCONNECT POSITIVE BATTERY TERMINAL BEFORE CONTINUING

    Start by locating the fuse box with the fog lights.
    Click for full size

    Remove the box by inserting a flat-head into the back of it and gently prying it away from the nub.
    Click for full size

    PUSH! PUUUUUSSHHH! Using speaker wire, positive to the red inverter wire and negative to the black then shove the speaker wire into the middle bird-panel anchor slot. I bent the wire just a bit so that it would follow the styrofoam bumper behind it and not get hung up. I suggest pulling out the plastic push-bolt that keeps the top of the bumper cover anchored [not shown]. It's located just infront of the hood latch. This way you can bend the bumper cover forward some to catch the wire earlier.
    Click for full size Click for full size

    expose the wires of the fuse box and locate the purple one for fogs; you can cut away some purple insulation [DO NOT CUT THROUGH THE WIRE] so that you can splice in the positive cable run from the cathode's inverter.
    Click for full size

    Anchor your ground and your positive as shown-use electrical tape to seal the splice in the purple wire.
    Click for full size

    Bolt it all back up and your good. I sticky-taped my cathodes and the inverter to the back of the clear plate.

    Here is what it would looki like if you upped the cathode count to 6, I will get pics tomorrow of 8 tubes.
    3 feet out

    5 feet out at angle

    This is the view less than a foot

    Its brighter than my turn signals with 8

    So instead of 2 lights you installed 6?
    Are those the super white or the blue?

    did you just cut and splice the other 4 cathodes in there? I don't like how uneven 2 makes it and would like to do this.

    also, where does one find super-white fogs, b/c even SilverStar bulbs look yellow next to 2 tubes

    No I bought 4 sets i drilled a 1/4" hole on the right side of the bumper on the flat spot behind the plate. I placed 4 in one hole and 4 in the lower hole. i'll get a pic of it posted. Those was 6 now I have all 8 in it. With 8 the space is about 1/4" between tubes. its bright.
