Okay, so I just saw them in person for the first time last night ( on a Civic ) but it looked awesome.
Now I have some questions.
How do you do it?
How much would it cost?
Are fog lights easier or harder or the same as the headlights cost and dificulty wise?
Are they functional or just for looks, do they replace your normal lighting, or do your normal lights come on seperately?
I know it is a lot to ask but I really want to do it but I need to be able to convince the wife. She did like the look on that Civic so I may have a shot on this one.

The fogs are made by several different manu'* the most popular around here are Hella'*. The fogs can be wired into the stock switch and the rings are a different circut.
The headlights are custom,Pat(1993 SLE) could tell ya more about the cost and time it takes

I've got the Hella ones ($60 USD) on pyfc.com. They're awesome teamed with the SilverStar bulbs I put in them they are nice and bright. I'll try to dig up some pictures of them on my Bonneville.

Hella Optilux are good ones, and not just because the Angel Eyes look cool, but the driving lights are incredibly bright and shoot a nice long white path of light. The visibilty of the fogs/driving lights over stock is worth the conversion alone. They are also glass, not plastic that pit easily like the stock fogs. And they aren't expensive at all. The angel eyes are just for looks.

Keep the receipt of the Hellas if you get them, some people have had an LED blow out early and the rings are then not as bright. I got a set that did that and the store replaced them for me.
