D.I.Y. - EG rear Fog Light for $2

here is my first DIY for my beloved EG6.
tools you need:
solder and solder gun (optional)
shrink rubes or electrical tape
Rear Outer Stanly bulb socket can be bought from scrap yard for $2.
paper clip or small watchman's flat screw driver.

keep the original inner light wire handy as you be using it for reference.

on the original inner harness note the position of wires. looking at the wire side here is how i labeled them for this install.
[R][ ][G][B]
[1][2][3][4]

to remove the wires from the quick connect on the Outer Stanly wire harness use a paper clip or small flat screw driver remove the pins from the quick connect on the Stanly outer harness.

the outer Stanly wire harness also has two wires connecting to the corner bulbs on USDM cars you can cut and discard them

the rest of the instruction are embedded to the pictures.

note this install will make the rear fog light come ON every-time you turn on the lights. i didn't want to go through the trouble of running wires to the front cockpit for the switch.

After the modification is done to the wires and connector install the proper bulbs into the sockets and then install the harness to your car.

now enjoy you very cool mod.

^^ rear foglight goes in the bumper.
I know my brothers old volvo had a rear fog inside the tail light housing. So does the MK3 jettas. But the real jdm fog is rectangular housing that is mounted in the bumper.

Actually its not JDM, its EDM. They only came in Europe for the civics in the bumper.

Ummm...isn't that what 4-way flashers are for?

I only use them for poor visibility situations (ie. heavy rain, heavy snow and serious fog).

I don't understand why some people drive with they're 4-way flashers on in poor conditions. I always see them in the winter time especially. What is the point of that? And isn't driving with 4-ways on illegal?

you also can't tell if ur signaling or not since all 4 flash at the same time.

Thats what I thought when I first saw this, seem's rather impractical.

4 ways are more visible in heavy snow or fog than just tail lights. If you want to turn/change lanes, turn 4 ways off, signal, turn 4 ways back on.
