SEE POST #8 FOR DIY






Saved myself 75$ from buying the housing
Ref: Looks just like this, for 75$!?!? I said **** that.


After 15 minutes of dremeling, the ebay jdm fog light housing fits perfect, even the screw hole is an exact fitment.

**NOTE** THIS WAS A TRIAL RUN ON MY BROKEN SET, BEFORE I WORK ON THE UNBROKEN SET THAT's ON THE CAR RIGHT NOW







Also, the ebay jdm fogs do not come with the cut lines like the real jdm ones do. so you have to figure it out.
just thought id throw this out there for those of you who want to save some $!

1. take bumper off


(what it will look like; trial vs jdm ebay)

There's actually lines on the bezel itself, if you look at the pictures where I taped off to show you how i'm cutting it -- there's preexisting lines in the plastic that I'm just following. It looks like in the euro bezel, all they did was just that - cut the provided lines out.



2.




3. start slicin!!






4. test it. BINGO!


5. cut the other two

I also added a weatherstripping on the bottom side of the lip to avoid a little bit of scraping

:) yeap, I did the same exact thing about 2 years ago (or so) for chyllintsx, when I installed his JDM lip. Too bad he later had a hit'n'run...

Good DIY :thumbsup: I'll add it to the DIY/FAQ Menu.
