I *THINK* the wiring is already there and it can be plumbed into the usual foglight switch. Vanny and Doc know about these things, hopefully one of them will be along soon to let you know what you need.

mornin' - Tim it's going on the yellow one and I hope Billy's right about the wiring already being there cos that would save a few headaches. The light switch has a lower setting which looks like a fog-light setting..

removed the old lower grill - wasn't so easy. It's stapled in along with rusted in bolts probably from rad leak or simply 20 years. Angle grinder dealt with it. Offered up the new spoiler item - looks a bit wide but I'm gonna follow through.
Poured over various wiring diagrams ( head-ache) and the afore-mentioned fog light switch operates the rear fog and there's indicated 'Front fog lamp socket' . Can't quite get it at the moment . Diesel diagrams refer to no such socket. Any ideas? :?:

Don't know if its any good but I think there's some Mk1 electrical info on Bob Smith's site. There is also wiring diagrams in Haynes.

thanks Jeremy. Looked at the link - there does seem to be a line to the front. How did they fit all those optional fog-lights in the early 80s otherwise? Looking at the lower grill it has removable blanks which must have been for the various after-market fogs available at the time. I will seek..

Ooooh, NICE, Todd! :D

Is it my eyes, or does the left-hand foglamp look a little off the horizontal? Probably just camera angle.

Are you going to keep it black, or spray it up in matching "Oil Seed Rape yellow"? :wink:

Dave the left hand lamp is a bit off. The adjustment is limited - I have tried - that's French quality for you. Was going to paint it but now I've got into the look -of it :D

It still looks really good Todd! How many people are going to be lying down right in front of her, with a protractor in their hands? :lol:

I think I agree with leaving it black....kind of sets it off nicely. I'm looking forward to seeing her "in the flesh", come the National! :wink:

Cheers
