Those are actually meant to be used as strobes/DRL. The output isn't that great for actually helping with visibility.

It's a street glow pro series strobe kit. I had to drill a hole in the housing and the lights seal the holes back tight.

That's awesome! I've been looking for some that can be drilled into the lights but the ones I see are cheaply made. Where did you drill the holes?

On the top of the black part of the housing and on the taillights I went in through the back black part but in the reverse part.

How did you attach the lights to the metal. I'm interested in doing this if I don't get the GT grille.

It's a rivet that's easy to install. To remove, just drill out the center.

Is gonna have some beast fog lights I wouldn't pop rivet KC lights. I would bolt them with lock nuts. They are a bit heavier and more expensive than these small strobes

Yes I would actually use bolts for KC lights. I just used the revits just cuz they were laying around and was wanted to try it out.

Just worried about the grille blocking them. Thanks for the heads up. I'm looking more of function than style. Plus I already have DRL in my headlights

Same here. If insurance won't let me have the GT I was going to go the route of KC. I like how silverbullets pictures make it look easy.

This had me thinking about fog lights in general... the harness alone is $189 with the switch to add factory fog lights to a base model. My gears started turning, especially after I saw pics of someone installing the "starsky" harness.

I think I can make the same harness for about $55~, including the switch and all raw materials for more than one harness. I need to test the wiring diagram I looked up to make sure I'm doing things right before I post about it (don't want you guys frying things), but I'm pretty sure I can give you guys a cheap alternative to hooking up some aftermarket fog lights while still retaining the factory switch if you want to do some fab work.

Best part, I probably have all the stuff I need to do it. I've got a ton of small gauge wire and connectors (and relays) lying around. I might get around to this Wed/Thurs if my car isn't being repaired.

I have the base model switch or no fog option switch lol. So its $200 basically for the switch that adds the fog light feature. I ask because either way I go, I gotta have it.
