The front end conversion kit that 05 Mustang and myself got comes with pre-cut GT500 fog light pig tails. So all we had to do was to cut the plug off the GT fog light harness and attach the new pig tails. This is one of the reasons why I recomend Keivn (a ford parts dealer) to everyone who want to do this conversion because he sells you a "complete" kit.

yea i contacted kevin. he sells the gt500 pigtails by themselves, so you wouldnt have to get the entire gt500 wiring harness. But it wasnt that much cheaper then the entire wiring harness and you still would need to buy some 12 gauge wire.

Also if u get the gt fog light male pigtails from the link i posted above you dont have to cut anything off your car and could go back to the factory look.

here is a pic of my homemade gt500 conversion fog light wiring harness.



i actually made the wires about 6" too long, it only needs to be 2feet.

I looked everywhere in my computer for this write up I posted over a year ago. Couldnt find the original so I'm re-posting it. Its a great setup for people who are running with an aftermarket hood and don't want to drill in the new hood to mount the ugly squirter nozzles, and the nozzle from Ford seems to work the best. Great spray and an OEM part, off of the rear of an Explorer.

Part# F87Z17603AA

Install Procedure
1. Locate washer hose under the hood.
2. Remove both wiper arms.
3. Remove the hood cowl by simply lifting off.
4. Add a 1/8" x 1/8" x 3/16" T fitting to the supply line. (3/16" side goes to reservoir side and the 1/8" will go to the wiper arm side)
5. Run the new 1/8" hose from the driver side wiper attachment down through the wiper arm hole in the cowl and to the 1/8" end of the 'T'. Repeat for Passenger side.
6. Put everything back on except the wiper arms.
7. Fish the hoses through the spring of the backside of the wiper arms, fill the casting pocket of the back side of the wiper arms with silicone. Push the hose into the silicone filled pocket and secure with a zip tie until dry.
8. Reattach the wiper arms.
9. Slip nozzles onto the wiper arm and cut hose to length and attach.

You can get these parts from most auto supply houses like Pep Boys, Autozone, etc.
