Help 2 questions Fog light size & Rear Subframe

Hi All

1st Question is there a minimum size rear fog lights have to be , As shown in the photo I'm taking the reflectors split them open and fitting ultra bright led's inside then closing so they double up as reflectors and fog lights.


2nd Question is one side of the rear sub-frame alignment bolts the recess where then off center washer sits is slightly worn , Not sure how much pressure it has to take im normal use but i want to make it more stable . does it sound ok to deepen the recess slightly more with a dremal , Any other ideas are welcome

Thanks

All spares parts for 156 and 147 being sold that i will not be using (cheap) nothing too small ask what you want , willing to post world wide Phone 07922123242 Ask for Neil and say Mark said to phone .

Done the fog lights they seem ok but will find out for sure when its mot time.

1st pic shows they still have Reflective properties when lights out
2nd pic shows led's on

If you can see or think of a problem i may have or get please let me know

Thankxs

I have thought of this but i cant find anything that mentions they have to be separate . Also while searching i found some reflector/brake light combo's.

Maybe an MOT guy can help out on this.
As i think reflectors are for cars to be more visible at night when lighting is off , this in mind makes me think that at night with lights on they are not needed .

Thanks for your thoughts Cuore i will keep reading and see if i can find an answer

Do you know of any cars sold in the UK or Europe which have the reflectors combined with any other light?

I'm not saying it'll be an instant fail, but you might fail one year, depending on who's doing the MOT...
