Default better pics of my 98SW2 driving light mod

Here's a better picture of the brackets I used to mount driving lights on my 98 SW2. I took them out today to add the black "bezel" which I made by wrapping electrical tape around the lens and then tacking it with some superglue. Looks better IMHO.



here are the lights I used:



Hope it's OK to post full size images in-line. I haven't set up a gallery since I have my own host.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Thanks PurdueGuy. Good eye, CKyAlliance07. I'm on it. That should be one of the more 'affordable' mods.

That looks GREAT man. Another thing you could consider instead of clear corners is just smoking/tinting the ones you have now to go along with the black head lights. Can't wait to see the before and after shots of the new springs and shocks (make sure you drive around the car for a bit before you take the after picture so that you let the suspension settle for the full look).

IMO, clear corners >>>> smoked corners on a white car. The corner lights just disappear...

Yea, it was just an idea to throw out there. In terms of money, tinting them would be cheaper than buying the clears, but it also depends on the owner and their tastes.

"Custom" might be a little too much praise for this:

But it works great to support the air dam and bottom of the facia plus it
raised the license plate enough so it doesn't hang below the air dam so much.

Here's the thread where I describe the air dam:
