Fog Light Covers

Hey guys, new to the forum, and this is my first post. After all of the posts and write ups about the grill mods I thought that Fog Light covers might look good with it.

Let me know what you think? And if you are interested in how I did it.

Originally I used the metal grating to do the grill mod, so I had a whole bunch left over.

• Start by measuring the opening on the fog lights. That should be 3.75" across.

• Give yourself some extra material to work with on the sides at least a couple inches and cut this off the main sheet.

• Find something to "mold" the grating around. A chinese food container works good. One of the wonton soup containers, quart size.

• Slowly start to bend it into shape around the bottom. This part took me the longest.

• Test fit.

• Trim off the excess so that you end up with the material across the front and then bends down into a "lip".

• The "lip" should be like .5" to .75" deep and sit up against the actual fog light. This is the part that will sit in the opening and hold it in.

• It's a bit labor intensive and takes time to get it to fit right.

• It should be a tight fit, and the tightness/friction is what will hold them in.

• Paint them and re-install them.

I was trying the think of something to do, but I wanted to go a little stronger. This will do for now, quick, easy, and looks good. I already broke 2 90mm Hella fogs in my Fab Fours bumper.

Titus, it will help with rock for sure. One hin though to everyone though, is if you wheel and go through water make sure your fogs are off, the heat from them and cold water will crack them instantly. When i wheel in the pines at night, mine are always off. I had both mine replaced for free from my accident, but they were already crazked then. Since the new ones, no cracks as long as they are off.

Also your close by! im in Blackwood! let me know when you want to wheel!

Do you need to take the lights out or do you just pop them in ?
