Does anyone know what type of fog lights were a factory option for brat roll bar (i.e., KC, Hella, etc.) or which manufacturer did Subaru dealers sell?

My old Lenses say IPF on them. Never did any digging to see what "brand" that was.

i dont think subaru had any for the roll bar that came stock but if your going for the stock look get the factory driving lights from the 80's that are square and put them on the roll bar, if don't really care just put a pair of good quality lights like kc, piaa, or hella, also what year of brat? i have a 85 with a roll bar but i dont have any on it because i have to take the roll bar off during the winter to put on the canopy

I am restoring an 85. I want original as possible. I am trying to find an accessory catelog or something that would show exactly what subaru sold at the time as an accessroy.

IPF is the Brand. Its an Aussie brand IIRC. They are used a lot on Landcruisers. They are kinda a subsidiary of ARB.

Scooter, I have been looking at the Accessory brochures from the 80s and non of them show Roll bar lights, or even brush guard lights.

Its possible the dealer could have added lights on some, maybe more for the Australian market and not so much for the U.S.

Either way, I will keep digging and see if I can find anything to help you out.
