But what are the odds of finding those lights now?

 

This...

 

There are a number of aftermarket rectangular fog lights that i think would look just as good still available. Just googling rectangular fog light have a bunch of decent choices

 

Looking around I saw quite a few, so they are out there...

 

I started doing this a couple years ago and just never finished it. Glad to see it done and it looks good. Waitin to see it on thr car.

 

Terrible pic, because it's parked too close to another car, but I couldn't resist a test fit.

Make sure your grille mounting points are strong cuz of the added weight!

 

Yes sir. Thankfully 510 grill mounts are overbuilt for how light the grill is. 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

It was on there when I got it, so I figured it could stay along for the ride!
