    fail !!! i'd say yes.

    wire...same size as already used but make sure the joint is waterproofed.

    if you use vaseline on the joints, it will help keep moisture out....

    Just grab some heat shrink and slide over soldered joints and you will be fine.

    Each Fog will draw 4.5a on a 55w bulb - so 10a cable will do nicely!

    Let me know how much you want and I'll throw some in a envelope for you!

    Always go by the maximum probable load! :thumb:

    i believe that is the maximum allowed under vehicle lighting regulations....just as 60watt is the legal max headlamp rating.
