Ok first a smirking chuckle, I have read many of the threads about how to install fogs, dummy wires, new switches and raised a discerning eyebrow at those not knowing the value of a relay... but anyway...

I haven't stayed current on the body changes year to year, although I know the fogs are quite different, but has anyone tried the new 01+ fogs in a 99 or '00 ?? I have a feeling the bumper fog recess shaping in the 99's are more elongated and tapered in the corners versus a more snubbed rounding in the 01+

I am about to undergo the metal cutting surgery to install the new-style headlights and am without fogs currently, so I would like to install the new fogs as well, just wonder if the fitment will accomodate the bumper and vice-versa.

From what i have seen and understand (correct me if im wrong) but the 99/00 fogs are more triangular and the 01/02's are more square/rectangular. I think that they way the 99 stock bumper is you CANT fit the 01/02 fogs without alot of modification. Definetly not worth it, if thats the case.

01/02 foglights

Yes that is what I was afraid of... Oh well, its always worth a post, guess I'll look into some used '99 fogs, mirror the insides and polish them up.

what about the plugs...I have a drift on a 99, but am going to put a 02 stock on while there is construction on the way to work. However I was wondering:

Do the 99 fog light plug, and the 2000 fog light fit together?

Thanks,
Brian

P.S. My friend just bought a '99 w/o fogs and was thinking about putting some fogs on...(since I have an extra set), but how hard is it. I would hope it is just a harness that I could copy off my car, but I haven't really looked into it yet. Anyone done this one?

NO...but its an easy fix. Go to the boneyard and find any car with the 9005 headlights. Cut the plugs off the harness with enough wire to splice the Cougar foglight wire to the plug. Wire the hot to hot and ground to ground. Make sure you wrap them good with electrical tape etc. to protect from water. I actually pulled the plugs from a Chevy Corsica and they worked perfectly. I also suggest the 9005 Silverstar bulbs. You have to alter little if any. Check the pics below for results...(also has new hood scoop)

What was the point of this sentence? You're a newbie - last thing I would do would be to insult those people that may be able to help you?!

To my knowlege and searches I am only aware of a few avenues for finding the cougar fogs, many aftermarket suppliers claim to carry factory replacements for many makes and models, but gee not the new cougar, oh well, on to the dealer, ebay (rare), and small car recycling salvage yards... or a buddy's house whom may be pulling off a front end mod.
