Question LX to GT conversion

Hi,

I would like to install the fog lights on my car. I purchased a brace (see link) and don't know how to install and hardware required.
Please let me know what I need and how the bar gets installed.

Thanks in advance.

If you're gonna be using the oem foglights or a pair with similar specs to the oems,it may be a good idea to do the wiring retrofit to prevent the headlight switch and wiring from
overheating and burning up.

Just remember, everything the GT wore that the LX did not, is heavier and slower than the LX.

By fractions. The GT’s are only 87 lbs heavier. I doubt that it’ll ever make or break him in a race. It’s hard to find a tight race these days. It takes nearly 300 horsepower to keep up with a new Camry.

Probably far from the level where 87 lbs would be important, anyway. That's the kind of margin that can be lost by exhaling at the wrong time. I don't race either but I went out of my way to get a brand new LX 5.0 notchback instead of a GT back in 1988. Not so much the weight difference, but I just hated, and still do hate all the ginger bread they hung on the FOX body GT.
