    My 07 Taco came w/o fog lights? It's a 4 Cylinder. I love my truck but I'd like it more if I could put some lights in those 2 black holes in my bumper.

    Has anyone bought the Blinglight fog lights from eBay and installed them? Are they any good? Is there anyone else selling a complete kit that'll fit in the stock bumper location? Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    The bliglights look alright.

    Here is the link if anyone wants to check them out:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/05-0...-lamps-06_W0QQitemZ220072181822QQcmdZViewItem

    You could also get a cheap set from auto zone or walmart and then buy the OEM button from the dealer. Just find lights that fit the holes, they come with all the wiring you need and then in the cab it would look like it is factory installed. My buddy did that on his truck, cost him $29.99 for a kit at walmart and $8 for the switch at the dealer.

    Well I managed to get some picture taken of both the truck & the Mini but I didn't drag out the tow bar from the shed so we'll have to use our imagination.

    Wow, nice Mini. What year is it? Probably late 50's or ealry 60's, I'd guess and looks like an 850. I had 2 Mini's myself. My last one was a 1275 Clubman modified to Cooper S standards. One of the fastest car's I've ever driven with a power to weight ratio of about 9. The wheels would spin on the shift up from 3rd to 4th gear too and fire out the pipes on down shifts. It was a race machine. I'll post some pictures when I can scan them.

    Cheers.

    Thanks guys.

    "Mad Dog" the Mini was born a 1963 Austin 850. It's been restored to Cooper S specs with a 1275 Cooper S engine, all synchro trans w/ 3.44 gears, Cooper S 7.5" disc brakes and all the other goodies to make it go much mo' faster. Lots of Mini pictures at our club website.
    www.miniownersoftexas.org

    TheMaster - looking forward to seeing your Mini pictures.

    Y'all have a good day. Off to work I go.

    Just received my fog lamp kit from Autopia tonight. If I can find the correct switch for my Taco from one of the local dealerships I'll attempt to install my lights this weekend. I originally bought an early style light switch but I think I'd rather go with the correct switch. Since this switch doesn't have an "ON" indicator I made my own to put in one of the other blank switch plugs.

    Nice simple rims. I like. I am interested as well to see how the light project turns out.

    So, what does that Orange/Yellow light do on the early style switch? :confused:

    I think that whole setup looks like fun, but maybe that's because I don't have fog lights. :)

    007 - the little yellow light is the "On" indicator for the switch. I just want to use the correct switch for my setup. I'll probably sell this switch if I don't use it once I'm done installing my lights.

    mugu - Thanks. That's why I liked these wheels. Very simple design and easy to clean. I've had wheels with lots on knooks and crannies and spent a whole day trying to clean them.

    LadyTaco - I haven't installed them yet. I'll attempt it this weekend. I'll take pictures and post a review for those interested. Basically I just want to fill those empty holes in my bumper.

    I am very interested in the finish product. Would it be too much to ask if you would take pictures of how you did it and post them on here? I am going to be doing the same thing, and I love knowing that someone else has done it successfully. Besides, we would all benefit from having some more "sticky" items in the Technical part of the forum. :)
