Default fog light wiring harness?

I have a 2001 SC1 and I just got some OEM foglights from an SC2 that I am going to put in. I know I don't have to wire them the way they come from the factory in the SC2's, but I want to know where I can find a wiring harness just so I can plug the wire into the bulb socket. I don't want to jury rig something and have it catch on fire or fall apart. I am going to use 899 bulbs, and I need to know where I can find a plug for them...thanks!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you want to wire it up like stock you neeed to purchase:

-Interior fog light switch
-Underhood fuse box
-Forward lamp wiring harness

You can wire it yourself and have it be safe and last as long as the stock components would if done correctly. All you need is a few feet of wire, a relay and a few electrical connectors. You could even use the stock switch.

If you are going to use wattage bulbs higher than the OEM ones (880 IIRC) don't bother to make things too fancy. The higher wattage bulbs will run too hot for the OEM housings and they will MELT within a month or two...so you'll be taking everything back out anyway. (Seen this MANY times) The OEM houings were designed for 35 watt bulbs. Don't use anything higher than that, or you'll be sorrryyyy....

the stock fog lamp bulbs are 880X. I recently upgraded mine with Sylvania Silverstars. now I can actually tell if they're "on" or not when looking over the hood from the drivers seat

i have pics of the wiring harness in my photos.

you'll need some other things too, like clips and junk. If you can get a spare fuse block that would be great, if not i got a few lying around.

I've got a loaded '97 SC2 to match my '97 SC1. I've got everything I need, I think.

Isn't the plug part of the wire harness? (I've got the rear of the car in the air, front bumper on the ground, can't see fog lights)
If not then...junkyard (pick&pull/whatever you call it) would be a usefull place, unless you've already looked.

If you want to go fully stock, you need the wiring harness, fuse box, and switch, if you're gonna splice it all up together yourself, go to a junk yard with some side cutters and just cut them off.

I bought 880 bulb plugs on ebay, then you can just run the wire, use a relay to turn them on when your headlights are on.

I also bought the housings on ebay, but you could find them in junkyards too.
