Title: Spruced up the Sube a little
Post by: Colorado_Baja on September 24, 2008, 01:12:18 PM
So when I got the car it had no tint on the driver window and some really awful after market fogs.
I had these Hella 500's on my 73 Commando but that project has kinda stalled so I re purposed them for the Sube. The stock Hella bracket makes the lights too tall to fit in the stock openings so this is what I came up with. I had to make a little angle bracket out of 1"x1/8" strap and used a combination of the old fog light hardware and the Hella stuff.
On with the pics.

With that extra 3/8" they fit in the stock buckets.

I think they turned out pretty sweet for costing pretty much nothing. You can also see the new tint on the driver window, it is a pretty good match, for $45..
Next some Rally Armor flaps and all weather mats and I should be good to go for winter.
