    did you ever finish your reverse setup?? i thought of anther way to have reverse.....my blazer is black so i think it would look pretty cool but cut bowties in your rollpan then put a piece of tinted plexi in there, then put your fog lights behind...........i think it would be strong enough in the day and at night plus it wouldn't be so noticeable if you didn't want a design on your roll pan....

    just bend the shit by hand... i taped one end to the caddie lights and just bent the metal around it. now that i think of how i would have done it different i would have bent it over a piece of pipe but its pretty damn easy to make.

    tape it to the light? how are you supposed to wrap metal around a light with one end taped on? seems like it'd pull off..

    Metal isnt that hard to bend... and the tape is just put there to make sure it stays in the same place, you hold it down with your other hand

    tape wrapped around like 3-4 times is pretty strong, and yea it is juts to hold it on there so it doesnt move

    width of the lights and bezel plus abotu 2-3 inches, better to make them bigger than they need to be.
