Aren't fog lights usually low mounted front facing?

The fog is as Andy said amber and rear facing (required for mot test).

Standard headlights can be changed to left dip beam using Toyota hilux units. I found this out while chatting to a mate at the front of his truck. 5 mins later he had a one eyed truck so I could double check.

There was also a complete wiring schematic posted on old UK forum. Will see if I still have it somewhere.

Oops I meant replaced the REVERSE light section! Replacing brake lights wouldn't be too clever. :-)

Hey Andy,

Nice GT! I've had a few friends mispronounce 'Fiero' as 'Ferrero', they now refer to it as the "Ferrero Rocher".

I also removed the wing and love the look, not to mention the improved rear visibility.

THIS JUST IN:

Nestle is selling it's U.S. candy business to Ferrero for about $2.8 billion. How will this effect the value of our little 2 door mid-engine machines?
