THose driving lights are actually cornering lights. They rotate when your indicationg to illiminate the path ahead.

You need a Fairmont/Fairlane bar to use them ie they dont fit in standard XR/Futura/GLi front bars, so I doubt they would fit into venom.

You could try something like this, although I don't know if this would work in a EF bar, depends on what is behind the brake duct.

Well see thats the problem, my lights are bolted into the plastic box that the cornering lights go into. If this box isn't there then I can't see a way to mount them.

the bumper. all you can see is the head of a bolt inside the brake duct vent. unless you get right down and look, you don't see it. there is a flat piece of steel on the inside of the bumper which the bolt goes through into - this flat steel also bolts onto the drive light bracket...
