I'm actually going to take my rings, and glue them to the intercooler on my car.

Default Morimoto lights

How did you install/keep the Morimoto's in place and how well have the stayed for you?

I tried hot glue, which worked right up until I washed the car. I ended up drilling three small holes in each fog light housing and used small clear zip ties to hold the rings in place. You can't even see the zip ties and they're not going anywhere!

I wonder how big the openings are in the bumper of an LS1 camaro fog light opening. Smaller for sure.. just wondering how much smaller. Anybody have any idea ?

Wired them to the fog light switch and also made it on its own circuit so the fog light switch works regardless if the headlights are turned on or off.

Still don't know how to mount them, right now I'm using scotch tape...
would you mind sharing how you wired your fog lights to come on regardless of headlights being on? Thanks in advance

Watch out for the lower quality zip ties though. The heat and cold cycles will get to them and eventually they get brittle and fall off..

Why would you not mount them inside the housing? Hot glue and drilling holes with zip ties? Put the halo ring inside for a oem look.

I like the fact that now you can have a straight-shot opening to the radiator via the original fog light holes! This would be most beneficial on my application with the hot running LT1. However, I was thinking about just using online specialty LED bulbs to replace my incandescent fog light bulbs. The site I can buy them from can install 30 bright output LEDs on a bulb unit and I imagine the light output would be close to yours with the Morimotos. Also, I would want an opening to my radiator so any air blowing by the fog lights would be used for the radiator.

I will admit, what you have looks cool as hell and is much better being totally rounded off. I would need time to think about it since I am so used to those fog lights on my LT1 Trans Am but again, you can't deny the advantage of having open holes for air to directly cool the radiator.

I just did a quick search of the size of the fourth gen Camaro LS1 fog lights and yeah, they are significantly small! I am not sure they even sell a halo fog light for the factory fog lights on your year Camaro, they only sell HID kits but there is a saving grace if you consider it. They do sell specialty LED bulbs that have the same exact sockets as regular incandescent bulbs. This is one option for you to consider.

Another option, try getting a set-up like the LT1 Camaro fog lights, and you might be able to find halo edge fog lights that are bigger in size and give a totally different look to your LS1 Camaro. These are just thoughts and I hope they help you.
