If there are no nuts in the package but there are bolts, take the bolts to the hardware store and buy the right nuts.....a whopping 75 cents is all you need to buy them. After that you should be fine. Oh removing the cruise/roof panel can be hard at first......take your time if it doesn't come out right away.

I just installed the JDM Fogs this past weekend. Took me about 45 mins. Its a fairly easy install. Take a look ta Spocko's instructions, they're fantastic..Thanks Spocko!

You can also just leave the switch on and hide it behind the left switch panel, so you dont have to replace ur cruise or the light dimmer switch.

I have a question though, for those of your w/ aftermarket alarms. The JDM fogs, one of the brown plugs plugs into the the #2 socket in the fuse panel. But a wire from my alarm goes into there.

The JDM fogs wont work in another socket, so i took the alarm wire out and now my alarm doesnt make my lights light up, ie. when engaging the alarm, the brake lights dont blink, when alarm goes off, lights dont flash/blink. Did this happen to any1 else? Im thinking about tapping the alarm wire into the brown jdm fog wire.

Just tap it...thats what i did. However, i don't like the fact that the fogs blink w/the alarm so u gotta remember to turn them off. I dunno if this is detrimental to the H3c's.

REMEMBER TO GROUND THE FOGS PROPERLY. THERE IS 2 COATS OF PAINT ON THE CENTER BRACE.

Guys, here's one tip for removing the switch case holder. I know you guys use screwdriver and shop towel to pry it out. All i did was, put your whole hand in the empty slot, shake it a little bit and yank it out. Came off easily.. And don't have to worry about scratches.
