    I actually got the fogs from this guy at the offroad expo and I think it was called offroad LEDs? But yeah he had light bars and everything but I saw these light and I thought maybe I can fit these in as fogs. Did some cutting and made brackets for it and bam!
    How I mounted the light bar I took out the crash bar and made two holes on each side. My light bar had two bolts coming down from the bottom and just bolted it through the holes. Pretty easy.

    For masking off the line and circle? Or for actually tinting them.

    For the masking out the circle and the lline I used contact paper and traced it on the taillight. Cut it out and stuck the contact paper on the parts I didn't want tinted and for the tinting it was pretty straight forward Just sprayed three coats of nightshade and came out great
