Yeah, I was assuming he's talking about KC's slim line fogs

Got a pair of the Black Magic 500 Hellas still sitting in the box driving me nuts because I can't find good clear instructions on the proper wiring through the firewall, connections, and how to install the on/off switch into one of my dead spots in the dash. I have the entire kit with harnesses etc and I'm competent enough to get them mounted with the SB brackets but I am lost with the main wiring. I do not have an **** do that's out and have no other electrical to wire up for awhile. Can anyone share a small write up or share pics on how to get these things functional on my rig so I can stop banging my head against the wall? A buddy of mine said that he might be able to help, but the pride of a DIY by myself will bring true satisfaction. The pic below is where I'm wanting the on/off switch. Thanks
