    i had 6 hella 500s on my jeep and loved the light output. ive had some thoughts of putting the blackmagic ones behind the grill of my wrx since i already have the big amber fogs. but id say go for it.

    I like the look but coming from the raptor community, I would go for something from Vision X, rigid or baja designs. Vision X have the solstice, rigid have the duallys and single row mini's and baja designs have a ton of options.

    Has anyone thought about, making something that will fit the bigger fog lights, in the existing "Non-Foglight" Covers.

    I'm looking to purchase another set, so i can cut the hole in the cover without ruining the ones i have. I think i will be able to create a bracket that connects to the actual bumper rail, and connect to the light for more support.

    The wiring is the easy part. Emailed a guy selling a couple different covers on ebay about two weeks back. Want to see if he still has them for sale.

    Will keep you guys updated.

    Im thinking of getting these SII, LED Spot, Amber Lens, Flush Mount and mounting them in the bumper outside of where the front license plate bracket is.

    this is my OP. thats exactly what my plan was and i actually have a bracket built right now... my problem is the bezel. dont go wasting your time hacking your fog covers because the angle is wrong for the lights to fit flush. you will need a bezel that allows you to recess the lights. if u just cut the stock covers it looks real amateur thats why i haven't done it yet. I am interested in this group buy if he can get them. i ended up going with piaa's instead of the hella black magics.
