R33 GT-R rear fog light conversion

Hi all, hoping this is the right forum.

Im looking to remove my nasty rear fog light hanging off my rear bumper and have the fog light built into my rear lights.

Can someone please link me to a guide on how to do this please.

Car is a 1995 R33 GT-R

Cheers

J

Not got a link but I've done it using a 21w red bulb in the off side reverse light. Easy to do. Trace your wiring to the fog light under your bumper. Re route the live to the back of your light cluster. Take the revrse light bulb out. The wire in the centre of the bulb holder is the one you need to cut and wire the live feed from your fog light to that.

Exactly, the 33 is blessed with 2 reverse lights (only needs one) just swap out one of the lamps and modify the wiring, Whallah!

Nice cheers so is it as simple as that for a garage to do or is there a guide I could do with following? So ill end up with one reverse light and just rewire the rear fog into the cluster correct?

There's no guide as such. Take a pic of the wiring to the fog and we will tell you what to do.

I have done this it is really simple, just run an switched earth to one side of the reverse light and power the other side from one of the sidelights.

I painted the reverse light bulb with my wife's nail polish and it's been in there 3 years now
