For 92-95'*, You bolt the new bracket to the old bracket in an L shape.

Bend the stock bracket forward if you can't adjust the housing far enough forward on the new bracket.

No pictures, Sorry.

you take the whole stock foglight bracket out first. there are 3 metric bolts holding it on.

not sure why you would want to do that. the fogs come on with the park lights...you don't have to have the lows on. If you still want to do that, you'd have to find the foglight switch wire before it goes up the A pillar, then connect it to a Hot In Run source...i don't know if that foglight switch activates a relay or not...it sure gets warm when the fogs are on.
