Alternative parking lamps? (69')

I was just wondering if anyone has done something different other than the factory style parking/turn light on the lower valance of a 69 Camaro? I was thinking...... using the existing park/turn signal holes as a fog light, and at the same time, make a custom ring of LED's around it to make as turn signals.

I have the idea in my head, but I'm kinda unsure what kind of lens I would need to use.

Any thoughts?

Joe

We have driving light kits for 69, 70-73 Camaros. Our kits bolt directly into the existing signal light mounting holes. The 69 driving light has a mirror polished shroud that fills the hole in the valance panel just like the original park light lense,then the light bolts to the shroud. Our lights have a park,turn, single or 7 color LED glow ring,also the lights are elevation adjustable. Our driving lights activate when the hi beam lights are on. A wiring harness ,relays are in the kit. Thank You, Billy

These look nice how hard are they to wire and where do the relays sit,could a plumber do it....How would they look on my stock Camaro I think they look good as $hit on Franks car but not sure about mine.

.........Dave,they would look just as good on your "stock" Camaro as they do/did on the '69 that Bob previously owned. Btw,Bob...I just noticed how the air filter was attached to the blower scoop...nice custom look.

Bob,
Only thing missing on that car is an inspection sticker behind the rear view mirror

What a ride...
