Tonight I felt like cleaning up my variety of Fog King lights. As already posted, I purchased a matched set of the amber lens that everyone wants. So I removed my other lens. One was red and the other was clear. I installed as a test fit the new lens.Everything appears to be correct. Tomorrow I plan to post pics of what I have.

Well as small as my garage work shop is I can't find my fog king mounting brackets.... I know they were purchased from two different sellers but they are in no obvious locations. But I found plenty of other Cord parts. It was like Christmas and birthday all rolled up in March. So here are the pics promised. Maybe later I can find the missing brackets...

I find it comical how I find missing things. As it is with all searchers, We find something in the last place we look because we stop looking. Well after two days of searching not once but three times in EVERY corner or box I finally found my original fog light mounts. Jim Obrien told me he thought Auburn was the original maker. Any thoughts on this??? So just because I had or maybe I should say made the time between digging weeds in her garden I thought what would these look like mounted on the car. So I mounted only what you see on the car. No sheet metal or engine or trans is in the car. But I have "all the pieces"... I just need one more part... Said with tongue in cheek... Enjoy the pics and please be critical of what you see. I'm not sure if the rings that hold the lens in the buckets is correct and of course the vents cut into the trans cover are not correct for the car as it left the factory. But they are a nice cooling idea. Abe Jenkins did something similar to this on the cars he drove.

So... After a very careful investigation by asking several ACD members it turns out what I have pictured here is correct. The lens, buckets, brackets and finally the important lens retaining ring are the right parts. Hope this helps others trying to purchase or make up a set of Fog King driving lights.. Now after finding all this great information out I went to the judging criteria.. Find of bad news too. Of the ten items where we can get extra judging points I have five of them..... We are ONLY allowed three.... I only added the winged hood ornament and these fog lights. I already had the maximum number of extra points on my car before I started... And I have been reading the judging information ever since it was published a few years ago....

Mike, maybe the judging committee should consider this !

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
