Do the same with the fogs themselves. You're going to need a meter for this one.
why a meter?
You need a meter to find 12V power at the source you choose, and to verify ground locations.

Here is my thread too, if it helps. I used a realy instead of the existing lines. The good thing about that is it is always hot, the bad thing about that is that it is always hot....

I would wire up the angel eyes, with a supplied switch. I know my Hellas use a relay, and a low powered trigger. If at all possible, run the parking lamps into the relay for the angel eyes, and the fog wiring into the relay, and then hook it up to the battery, so you still get propper voltage, and wattage.

Agreed... this would probably give you the best of both worlds. Jason, what happened to your siggy?
