I understand what color the posts are supposed to be. However, I have two sets of posts and they are both different! I am going to be putting one set back on sometime soon, hopefully the right set!

Here is a page from Paul's first book and a picture of a correct installation. There is some debate as to whether or not there should be 2 square washers instead of 1.

tubes below the fog lights

Can anyone tell me the OD and length of the tube for the fog lights? Are they farily thin metal or pieces of pipe? I have some lights I bought a few months ago but have no idea what to do about the tubes themselves.

Bob Teets (Hi country bob) sells the kits. It includes all the pipes, bots, and washers. After seeing all the special one-off parts needed I was happy to buy the parts from Bob rather than try to make them myself or get someone to make them.

I would be elated to buy the kit. Sorry for the dumb question but where do I find Bob Teets?

Much Thanks

Excuse me

I just looked at the High Country side of this site and saw Bob Teets' phone number. Sorry for not looking before I asked. I'll check with him on the posts for the fog lights.
