Cord Fog Lamp Wiring was created by Terry Cockerell
How were genuine Cord accessory Fog Lamps wired up? There are holes in the back of the cast steel mounting brackets which I assume the wires were passed through but what was the route of the wires below that? Where holes drilled in the fenders to pass the wires through or did the wires wrap around the fenders?

As I understand it, these were often (always?) dealer installed., so there is likely some variation. But its my understanding that they used armored cable, going down from the fog lights, making a tight loop under the front of the car and then routed along the frame to the cowl.

Armored cable in loops around the body sheet metal were my initial thoughts.
I have been to Auburn three time and checked all of the pictures I took but there is nothing conclusive regarding cabling. That is why I have asked the question.
A couple of Cords here in Australia fitted with fog lamps have chromed flexible conduit but looking closer at the fog lamps reveals that they are not genuine Cord items.

Hmm, so the armored cable continued along the frame all the way to the cowl or was the cable was armored just until it reach the frame? Could someone(s) please post photos of how they routed their cables?

The fog lightgs were installed at the dealerships so they were installed however the mechanic at the Dealership decided to do it. While Cord offered the fog lights and mounting brackets to the dealers they were expensive and there were some dealers that bought Fog King lights and standard brackets and installed them.

On the wiring of the Cord accessory lights, several of the original brackets I have seen, the hole on the underside of the bracket for the wire is not big enough for an armoured cable to pass through. So at least some of them only had regular wire running to the fog lights. If they did use armoured cable on some of the cars they would have only run the armour under the front fender, not back to the dash.

Thanks Jim, that makes sense regarding how to run the wiring.
I sent you some copies of the drawings found by the Hupmobile Car Club, did you receive them?
