Hey fellas...
i know i have already started a thread about the lights but no one read it to the end and get to the question i need answered (if u get what i mean lol)
Neway, I have now bought the fog lights and bezels, and i was looking at them today and i can't figure out how you attach the bezel to the front bar, i can see how the lights sit, but i can't fiigure out how u put them both together.. do i need to cut anything? where do the edges of the bezels clip onto? some pictures or a walk through as to how i do this would be great...
Cheers
raZel :thumbsup:

You must also purchase a new bumper bar that has the holes for the bezels already cut out. These are generally found on an SS or Calais front bumper. When I fitted the driving lights into my VTII Berlina I also had to replace the front bumper to gain the access holes. The bezels then press into the bumper holes in the right places and job finished:thumbsup:

most ppl just cut into the bumper to make it fit instead of replacing bumper

Believe you me if you want a professional finish then a new or good secondhand bumper is the way to go. The guys who have cut them all say the same things that it is a **** of a job as to get the holes exactly right and the bezels to slot straight in is a very hard job. My advise change the bumper but if not give it a go first and if it stuffs up then you have to buy one anyway!!

just save time and trouble and take to panel beater and get it done.
if you put the bezels against the bumper you will see what you have to cut but unless your good at taking bumpers off and cutting it without cracking the paint around it then take to panel beater

Was curious to know if I can put fog lights on my 2002 VX Commodore Acclaim????????? I've already cut out the holes and have put mesh in them.
