Aiming Fog lights

Hi,

Does anyone have a good way to aim fog lights on a 79 SC? While your at it, if you have an easy way to aim the headlights, this might be of benefit to someone.

Thanks

I like to find a fairly quiet section of road where my lights hit a hillside at a turn in the road. I drive towards the hill and find a spot where my light cutoff doesn't move up and down much on the hillside from what seems to be an accurate indication of the current aim.

If there's no convenient road, the parking lot solution with a nearby wall is always good. I do the same drive until finding a flat stop trick.

I carry a heavy towel to block one side or the other, not as scratchy as cardboard and you can just drop the lid to anchor it.
