DRL and foglights??

So, I have seen where folks have posted about unhooking the RS model DRL and wiring them up to the parking lights to have them work while driving at night?

Sounds great!! How would one go about doing this?

Also, I'm thinking why could you not have them for both applications.. How bout leaving them wired up as DRL normally but also splice into the parking lights to have them work w/ the normal headlites.. I suppose this would require a diode to be installed as well to keep the DRL's from powering the parking lites during the day.. ha..

Thoughts? Suggestions? Help?

TIA 8)

This is how it would work for me ideally(with RS cars):

With switch in "Auto" position:
- During day, (DRL) fog lights and halos would be on.
- In low light conditions, main HID headlight would come on in addition to the fog lights and halos.

I wired my DRLs up to my park light circuit today, so whenever the park lights (halos, etc) are on, the new and renamed fog lights now come on too.
However, I've also retained the standard DRL function.
I'll write up a DIY tomorrow or something, too late tonight.
Definately needs an LED bulb to match colors, but for now, this will do great.

If somebody got me detailed specs on how they wanted this wired, with wire lengths and everything, I could custom make some harnesses for this application with diodes and everything.

I know I said I'd write it up today, but I didnt,
However, I did make some really good breakthroughs!
You'll all be pleased! Stay tuned...

Ok, Ok.
I have some bulbs on order, hopefully be here Friday, maybe Saturday, but in playing around, I happened upon a really cool setup.
I'd have not thought about it if I wasnt screwing around and bored, but I think it actually looks cool, and depending on your body color, may be perfect!
They are amber incandescent 921 bulbs, and look kinda cool, but the LEDs would be better.

Now I gotta warn you, of the two mods I did to the DRL/fog lights, they both require cutting and splicing, etc of the factory wiring.
The first one, and only complete one (fogs on with park lights), requires only a little, and its in the bumper wiring harness.
If done tastefully, nobody will know its there, looks factory, and most dealers wont even realize the fogs come on with the park lights.
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44104

The other mod (different bulbs for fogs), is not complete yet, still perfecting, so I will not post it, though I will give some sneak peak pics.

I don't understand why you would want fog lights on all the time. Most people think its rude and it is illegal in several states that I know of.
