Hella 500's installed (big pics)

Recommended Posts

Guest james hogan

Finally got around to putting foglights on the RX.

 

I need them up here in the mountains almost every morning.

They throw a very flat, horizontal beam.

 

Recommend them to everyone.

Guess these foglights go against the all stock look I was trying for, Eh? <img src="http://groups.msn.com/_Secure/0TwDLAnYXwat!Vpte9iX7zFCEczZ9qdAXHsrJx0KxYxKh!tbWnLMpnJdtGVVshWJPbsiAVWXfNLkPL0!tp1lE5gnkG*OZgkeWsrOk8shSsnVVe9iwtLPKFw/pushbar%20fogs%20011.jpg" style="border:0;"/>

Gotta LOVE lights! I do!

 

I think I have the same Hellas on here - they came with a parts car I got for $50.00...

Does your car run hot? I tried to space mine far enough apart as to not block the grill.

 

did you have to fight the bumper to mount them?

When I had my crappy old single core, all plugged up, radiator, it DID run hotter than it did without the lights. When I swapped in a brandy new dual row turbo radiator, it runs cool as a cucumber.

 

I have removed the plastic and foam on my bumper, so I just have the steel skeleton - which made for a real easy installation. When I pulled the Hella's off of the parts car, the previous owner had a full bumper - and it looked like he had to use a hole cutter or something to make a big hole in the underside of the bumper to be able to fit the mounting screws and have enough room to get a socket in there to tighten them.

 

Me - I just drilled a hole through the steel and was done with it. You can kinda see the bumper deal in this shot:

This post was moved from the old site, Vbulletin won't allow dynamic picture addresses, so my pictures aren't working.

thanks to silvershadow for the info.
