I think the Cornering lamps look great when wired up as foggies, but as you can see probably doesn't help with fog much where it points, not its intended purpose.

Although it is noticeable where t lights up when you're driving along.

Worthwhile mod IMO, both practically and looks wise.

Try rubbing the rest of the paint of with thinners. Normally works to get paint off plated plastic, just might take a while.

Engine bay is coming along nicely. What sort of air intake did you have in mind? What colour for the rocker cover?
