I knew I wanted to run some yellow fog lights in the location of the original parking light/turn signals but I wasn't sure how I was going to do it. I ordered a set of yellow fog lights for a stock Jeep Wrangler. The original opening for the lights was about a 1/2 larger than the Jeep lights. Wasn't sure of the best way to close this gap so I bought a set of 5 inch into 4 1/2 diesel exhaust pipe transitions and grafted them into place. Then fabbed some mounting tabs to attach the fog lights and keep them adjustable.

Now that I was running fog lights, I need a new place for turn signals. I sketched out an idea for some one-off billet housings which would hold a switch back turn signal/DRL. I sent them to Jonathon at Sparc Industries and he machined up a set of lights that "float" in the center of the brake duct openings.

It's a little bit hard to see, but if you look at that last picture of the front end you will see that the bumper "fangs" that normally highlight the license plate area have been moved outward and now highlight the foglight area. We used three bumpers to make the one on the car now.

Thanks for the compliment. Nice work on the front valance and bumper. I used 2 bumpers on mine and got rid of the fangs on mine.

I was originally going to get rid of the "fangs" also. I do love the smooth look. In the end I just decided to move them outward because I wanted something different. As you know it is so difficult to do somethnig on a 69 Camaro that hasn't been done before.
