    My first post on here so be gentle.

    I have bought some foglights for my Hymer, privately as dealer prices are silly. But after looking behind the fibreglass front end it looks like I may need a bracket at the back.

    Can anyone with a Hymer and foglights fitted, take a picture of the fixing bracket please or are they bonded directly onto the fibreglass?

    cheers

    Jimmy

    Welcome Jimmygnarl (y)

    Considering some sort of lighting upgrade for our Hymer too so interested in responses, sorry cannot help with question although model number and pic of front end of your Hymer will help I am sure.

    I assume you have the hella 90 mm fog lights, our Flair has these in the fibreglass bumper and they just feel to be on two brackets but will try for a better look and a photo later when I'm not in my dressing gown.

    Well all dressed and had a look, as I said ours is a Niesmann Flair not a Exsis Hymer but if it's just got a round hole in the bumper the same applies. Ours has a pretty home made looking bracket that fixes to the top of the light unit and then the bumper it is in the pointing up position, then another bracket below that it sits on to stop it bouncing and a tie wrap to pull it down to the correct level, sideways adjustment is not too critical as the fog beam is flat but you do want to get the height correct.

    It looks a bit Heath Robinson, but it works.

    Sorry couldn't really get a photo.

    Thanks for the replies so far. I don't mind making a bracket myself but just thought if Hymer or Hella make a bracket for the job I could save a lot of time.

    Hi Jimmy,
    If you have any problems making the bracket I am only in Wrexham and could help, I do have welding facilities etc. and some metal.
    Regards
