you could just buy additional side repeaters and mount them in one of our fogs or somewhere on your bumper

car wasn't black though

i dont mean metallic black that looks dark grey and highlights silver

its an rst so its gloss black, no mistaking it for other colours and no fancy paint effects when the light hits it like metallics/pearlesants

i've seen em done like it and it just looks wrong, something i want to over come

looking at a bit of custom work now which might change the way it works

Does anyone know the legalities on using the foglamps in my bumper as indicators aswell as fog lamps

i wont be using the inner lamps as these will be removed for venting and clearance at a later date

i think that it would be an MOT failure where i work.
have you considered putting an extra bulb into one of the new lights? using a silver bulb and a huge drill bit im sure you could manage it?

You should do what Chris - Stoned - did on his old red one (One with the Voodoos) those red matched indicators and rear lights looked sooooo nice and smooth.

so basically do what i was considering doing with the fog lights????

one good point is the fogs dont have to be functional so could just unplug em come MOT time

smoked indicators?

indicators replacing your outer fogs?

one off unique black mesh fitted around your original bulbs with some sort of water proof clear material of some sort to protect em?

not sure of any other ways :?

spoken to my friendly MOT place and it'll be fine aslong as the fog can light up when the indicator is on.

hmm lets go play with some relays then

need a switchable relay with a master overide for the indicator, gonna have to take that feed before the flasher unit otherwise i'll get fog, indicator, fog indicator etc, will be like a disco

I THINK, that if your car has foglights, then it is an MOT failure if they're not working / unplugged....

just looked up the MOT regs on this

and FRONT fog lights are NOT part of the MOT test and this is catagorically stated in the rules, they may be checked but dont have to be functional.

front spotlamps that work with full beam must be functional if fitted :D

that solves a few problems :D

i think i might do a FAQ on frequently asked MOT questions as this was doing my head in for a while and i ended up looking through about 20 pages of legislation about it
