Question OEM fog fitment issue

I picked up some OEM fog lights for my 93 Accord and used the template on the inside of the bumper to do the hole cut out and there is a large gap on the bottom portion of the fog light and it seems like the top of the fog light is too high but the brackets lined up perfectly. I don't know what went wrong but I don't like the way it looks. Any ideas on what went wrong?

Rubber hose is definitely the way to go, since the original parts are nearly imposssible to find in usable condition anymore.

Also, you do have 92-93 fogs, not 90-91, right? They differ. Not sure what figment issues would come of using the wrong years.

Yep, like erik said, there is a trim bezel that goes around the foglights, without it you have a gap. This is true for all 92-93 fogs, US and JDM.

US 90-91 vs. 92-93 fitment issues would be bad to say the least. 90-91 are square(ish) and I believe are about a half inch taller and shorter/narrower length wise.

Get some European 90-91 fog lights... they don't look so good on either 90-91 or 92-93 bumpers.



Sidenote, glad you're using the image from my wordpress. The very reason I put them up over there.

It looks like he does have some kind of rubber bezel, it just looks like it's seen better days.

Yes they are the 92-93 fogs. I purchased then from a member of this forum I met at a picknpull here in Washington. I'll get his username so he can get credibility for the sale and extremely good deal. I'll also post pics.

I didn't do the cutout. The guy I bought them from did. He said he wasn't happy with the results as well. He has a 90-91 and this was his first time doing a 92-93.

What type of rubber hose should I get? I've heard vacuum line hose and door trim. I'm unsure about sizes though.

I know this is off topic but how would I go about purchasing a cb7tuner key chain and white decal? I had a different profile and build thread for my car. My phone got destroyed and I've had a lot going on so I can't remember my username or anything. It's very unfortunate because I have to start from square one again. Thank you ahead of time.

Yeah this is a bit off topic.
I'm currently having the decals made as per Mike's specs (I discussed this with him a few weeks ago and am only now getting around to making them), they should be ready by the end of the week.

Of course you can always order them from Mike through the CB7Tuner store. I'd PM prior to order just to make sure he still has them in stock.


All keychain orders can be made through the for sale thread (link on my sig), ebay (just search for CB7Tuner), OR you can just email me.
