Default SE Bodykit Fogs Super duper mod

I have been searching for SE fogs for like forever.. i decided it was enough and there had to be another way for these holes to be filled.
Got a set of new boch lights that are legal to run during the day here (called verstralers in dutch)



So i made my way to J2's garage thingy and we though of a way to mount them, then J2 welded the brackets together and i mounted and wires the lamps.
Really not much to it.. i wish i did this a year ago.. the trouble i went through for SE fogs

No action shot of the fogs on cause my battery seems to have died the moment i got home.. thank god for volvo's always breaking down less than 1 KM from home

that's the best way to do it, waiting around for expensive, used, hard to find parts gets annoying.

Agree.. from what i heard the expensive SE fogs are bound to rust and have a bad fitting to the kit.

Those lights look exactly the same as the SE lights, only with different eeuhm, side bits and without the 4 holes that are used to mount the SE lights.

I don't have a photocamera dude

BTW, i see that they also exist with a yellow lens. Interesting. BTW, did you see where the lights were made? The SE fogs were made in Italy... Maybe they were actually made by Bosch...
