they're simple installation i did them on my stang from VMP didnt have to take the b umper cover off or anything, the wiring was extremely easy to do. the only pita is mounting the lights themselves. but theres nothing difficult about the installationat all

not at all it comes with the switch and all you really have to do is use this pink plastic peice to splice 2 wires together ( a white and black striped 1 and a blue 1 that comes with the kit ) then a peice of plastic just plugs into the back of the button. its really simple

you need red wire and black wire (red for power black for ground)

the bulb on the fog lights will take power/ground on either little prong, doenst matter.

You need to first mount the fog lights, should be very easy to figure that one out. Next go buy the wire and relays. Finish up with getting the correct hardness plug connector to mate up with the fog lights, should not cost much and will have two wires out the back of it that you can use to wire up the fogs.

you should also get some crimp connectors, a wire crimper, and electrical tape. Take a relay (takes power from a source then turns on, then runs power directly from the battery to where you want it to go) from autozone to power one accesory.

mount the relay near the battery out of sight. Run power from the battery to to the relay (in the correct position of course) then run a ground to the relay from the battery.

now pop out your drive side head light, on the amber bulb wiring harness use a power tester to find the wire that is ONLY hot when the parking light is on, NOT the turn signal just the parking light. Splice into this wire a red wire and run it to the turn on location on the relay.

now run the accesory power wire from the relay to the fog lights, finally ground the fog lights back to the battery. Then the fogs will come on when ever the parking lights are on automatically and go off with them.

Installing the lights is real easy if you put the front up on ramps.
It can be done on the ground but it's a tight fit. I did it on the ground.

yea, and about the switch (if you wanted a switch for only the fogs, and not with your driving lights like spector explained how to do)...i got the factory switch off a website (because my car didn't come with fogs..) and installed it, its very easy. If you know how to do it, it's even easier..i just kinda started popping things out until i got to the spot where i put it in (the coin holder place). One of the coin holders in the center pops right out and you just put it there. Looks way cleaner than mounting a random switch up under your dash. Wiring to that switch is just like normal, except for one thing. There's a small light that comes on when the switch is on and you have to wire that up..but it isn't that hard and you don't even have to hook it up..

hope that post wasn't too confusing

not where i got mine, but here is a link for that switch (near the bottom)

Get them from Velocity Mustang Performance, the guys are great, know what they're doing, and will walk you through the whole thing. O..and btw, I wired mine up like factory lights and they work with parking lots or headlights, your choice.

Around 170 shipped, and very easy install. They will walk you through it if you want. Great customer service. A1 in my book.
