Did you have any trouble finding ones that fit? Mine have literally turned into dust. The lenses are smashed all to hell too.

I can't remember off hand what kind I went with but they were just the 29,99 set from Canadian Tire. I think they were made by blazer.

I thought I made a post on here some where about it but I can't seem to find it.

I basically measured my current set of lights and went to the store to see if I could find something that looked the same. Once I found them I measured them and it was a perfect match.

Here'* a progress report on the fog light reburbishment:

This was the condition of both of the fog light assemblies. The lights themselves disintegrated into chuncky dust, the brackets were structurally sound but rough looking and the light housings were in decent shape but the paint was bad. I ran across some Naval Jelly that was still packed in a box (we bought a house in August and I still have things in boxes) and gave it a try. As advertised it dissolved the rust. It took several applications but was a very low impact work out. Brush on...have a beer and watch TV...rinse and reapply. After most of the rust was gone, I used a Dremel tool and a variety of attachments to remove the rest. Here'* how one side came out:

Not bad. I'm not going to worry about the pitting that has occurred because it'* minor and I'm not building a show car. Perhaps a couple extra layers of sandable primer will hide it more.
