    Did any Aerostars come with fog lights. Surely some did,but the three I;ve owned did not. I figure to buy something and imbed them if possible. I make 4 trips a year thru foggy mountains and I'm tired of the suspense.

    You could get LED projector lamps. Check EBay. I think that they are around 80 or 100 watt equivalent of halogen lamps but only use a few watts per bulb.

    You can't mount anything in these bumpers, but you could mount them behind the grille or next to the headlights in front of the grille. What about a light bar on the roof?

    The valance is just the piece that has the fog lights. It bolts to the bottom of the bumper, it would give you a factory looking place to install the fog lights. What gave me the idea was years ago I was reading about a turbo ford festiva and the owner had installed that valance on the car.

    Harbor Freight just started selling LED lights from a company called Roadshock. They have several different sizes.

    Yeah,I wondered the same thing. The light holes are for round fog lights,which is okay, but I need the diameter of the holes. I'll look again.
