Show me some SC,s with flush mounted fog lights

I'm interested in changing the front look of my 1981SC to the euro-style appearance with flush mounted fog lights. Would like to see some pics. And how difficult is this to do?

Thank you in advance
Barclay

The flush mounted fogs came on all Carreras from '84-'89. Nevermind the turbo look on this car, but notice the fogs are close to flush with the valence.



Here are SC style fogs.



Is that the difference you're looking for? If so you'll need a Carrera front valence and Carrera fogs.

The downside is the back of the fogs interfer w/ the windshield squirter tank. (search for work-arounds)

I have a carrera valence w/ fogs, which I never installed. I think I paid $175.

That' correct but a salvage yard w/w tank is cheap. Even better is a small ight late RS tank.

I was thinking of doing this upgrade? too at one time, But now I like the way those fogs help define an SC from a Carrera as the older 911.
