Need help with installing Inspire Fog lights

I purchased the Inspire fog lights and I searched the forum for a DIY write up but I came up empty. Does anybody know any reputable shop or person that can install them. I live in the So Cal area. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

is there a DIY for how to mount the inspire fogs on the 7.5 gen sedans?
This is what I would have used if i was gonna do a DIY. Just curious where did you get the inspire fog lights from? I had 1 pair but without any harnesses or plugs so I ended up selling them. Not to sure about reputable shops, but I know a few people in South El Monte near rush and peck road area that have their own shop, and they do some good work. Its called garage life.

Cool thanks bro. Yeah I seen that thread as well. But I already converted my front end to the 06 front end, so I don't need to cut the bumper. I bought the Inspire replica fog lights off ebay for $100. It came with the harness, switch and mounting hardware. I compared the harness to the OEM harness and it has all the same components. For example, the fuses, relay and etc. But I know fellow members are gonna bash me for not going with the OEM harness. Lol But it's all good. Hopefully today, I could get them installed.

Even with the 06 bumper, it still requires some cutting in order for the foglights to be secured onto the bumper itself. I am so tempted to buy the inspires right now as well! In regards to the switch and harness, I think you should at least go with OEM foglight switch, it should make install and use a bit more easy. Post pictures of the process if you can! I cant wait to see how it turns out!

Yeah the inner bumper needs to be cut in order for the fog lights to fit. Yeah I might just go get the switch today. Most likely, I'm gonna get it done at a shop. But I will post pics when they're installed.

It's not too bad to wire up (literally 15-20 minutes of wiring, just make sure you get the pins right!).

You have to cut the inside plastic out. I did mine like 2 years ago and they fit alright, I should've taken more time to do it slowly. Patience is key!

Browse the OEM foglight installation sheet and see if that will help you install your aftermarket fogs.

Yesterday, I finally got my inspire fog lights. My friend installed them yesterday and he did an excellent job. He made the fog lights HELLA FLUSHED with the bumper. LOL My baby Serenity looks like she's smiling with joy. =D I recommend him to anybody to wants to install the Inspire fog lights into their Accord. Just PM me if you're interested. Now, all I gotta get now is the lower grill and lip, and my front end is complete. =)

Noticed that your car is red under the hood. Was that the original color, or did you just paint it that way?
