    I did the same as you, I used a screw through the bottom mount, a thick cable tie on the far ends, and a nut and bolt in the mount towards the middle.

    Hope that helps

    Hotzafira, just a small tip, either make your photobucket account private or don't upload the reveal pic until you actually choose to reveal the answer. In respect of your question I've no idea but would like to know too as I too am interested in retro fitting the fogs and grille etc....

    Could you not buy the clips/ nuts/ brackets from VX so they are fitted to the grill correctly.

    I am going to be doing this at some point and shall be looking to get the parts needed from VX, I already have the grill and am looking to buy the lights.

    You can get the lights quite easily from ebay, I used the fittings above to attach the new lights to the grill & bumper ( the screw goes through the bumper into the bottom of the foglight.)

    The connections for the foglights should be there behind the bumper, but the loom bringing them to the fusebox may not be, so an aftermarket switch & relay will do the job.

    However you will have to get VX to fit a loom if you want the standard fog switch to work and the dash light to work ( unless you're quite handy with electrics.)
