I bought these because my LT1 didn't come with fog lights. I would give it five stars but I didn't realize the chrome bezels needed to be purchased separately. At first, I installed it just fine without the chrome piece, but after about a week I decided to buy the chrome bezel from the dealership (my dealer gave me a pretty good price; $58 for both left and right) and now my car looks better than factory! Thank you

I owe you this response from last summer. it has taken this long to get my lights installed, because I used my auto tech-spert rather than a stereo shop. I wanted you to see the results. Yet, my guy is as artistic as he is mechanical, but its worth the wait
Here we go.
He used the same materials, heavy gauge stainless steel whatever-piping-conduit-exhaust heavy stuff, to mount a housing for my fog lights - and for my dual exhausts which he installed at the same time. Both the front and back are clear coated and look really good. He opted to retain the large synthetic black plugs in the front which normally cover the fog light holes in the equinox, and meticulously carved out holes in the plugs to embrace the chrome-like-steel housings. This way we could decide how far out, or in, we wished to have the (now) chrome housed fog lights to be set. Back in, or protruding out.
We decided that "in" was pretty common, but that 'out' would catch one's eye, somewhat balancing with the extended dual exhaust.
I am enclosing a couple pics of the car after installation was complete. These are before the car was detailed and polished.
Thank you for your explanations last summer - hope you enjoy seeing how a crossover can be jazzed with your product, another way.

Had to reshape the chrome (plastic) bezel to make the light fit good. Reemed out about 3/8 of an inch set the lights in and adjusted for up/down and left/right. Then epoxied them in so they would not move. Just checked it out at night and the results are GREAT!. I also have changed the low beam bulbs. I have good experiences in the past with this brand in my Impala SS and Envoy. Better brightness than stock. GM/Chevy really dropped the ball on stock lighting. Oddley enough my high beams on the 2010 Equinox are VERY bright and acceptable. Wiring was very easy with the exception of the supplied wires were to short and had to splice . No problem. Also changed the switch that was suppled thru Blinglights with a rocker switch from NAPA. It is a rocker with a green light and I mounted it just above the the round dial for the interior light adjustment. Power comes from a hard wire to the interior fuse box so that I can turn on and off at will and it will go off when I turn the ignition off.
