    I began the install of the PIAA 510 fog lamps last weekend. It rained 3 mornings this past week and the lights work well.

    Here is a pic of the install lamps.

    I drilled a hole 2” from the rear of the fog lamp assembly and that gave me the clearance for the fog lamp to fit in the opening.

    However under the hood was a temporary wire job. Butt Ugly.

    Today I went to work on a fuse panel/relay center that I had planned for under the hood.

    I needed to cut the buss bar to 6”

    Here is the finished install with room to add 3 more relays and an extra fused circuit that may be required in the future.

    What is nice is that now adding lamps to the bed or a set of driving lamps will be an easier project. All I need to do is add wiring to the lamps and add a switch. I ran an extra 8 wires from the fuse paned to the area where the existing fog lamp switch is located.

    My Tacoma did not have stock fogs so I really do not know.

    Looks great. I wish I was that handy. My wiring job looks like a gang bang of copper and fuses.

    Just take your time and do not be in a hurry.
