Mustang Scott Drake Fog Light Assembly (1968) Installation Instructions

1. To begin installing your new Mustang Scott Drake C8ZZ8390BR Fog Light Assembly, remove them from their packaging.

2. Connect the pigtail conductors on the fog light assembly to the Mustang fog light bulb. Polarity doesn’t matter for these lights. You can hook them up either way. There is a ridge on one side of the light that matches up with a channel within the assembly housing, so physical orientation does matter. Warning: It seemed like these amber lights needed to rotate 90 degrees for a better fit inside the assemblies, but that wasn’t possible because of the orientation of the wiring terminals on the luminaire.

3. Use a ratchet or nut driver to remove the fasteners that hold the original Mustang grille assembly in place. There are two large bolts towards the middle, one on each of the two hood bumpers, and six smaller screws spaced around the bottom edge of the grille. All bolts and screws are easy to get to.

4. The original factory grille already has holes for the Mustang fog light bar bracket. Common installation requires blind rivets (pop rivets). However, I used speed nuts and screws. The speed nuts will eventually be attached to the car’s frame, but they were temporarily installed to the perimeter of the grille to fit the fog light assemblies in place on my workbench.

5. I used a set of wire cutters to remove a portion of the grille for the Mustang fog lights. I started by removing very little from the center of a fog light location and cutting small pieces off little by little until the light assembly could attach completely to the bracket without touching the grille.
