I figured as much with fog lights. I already miss mine, so I have sworn to make a clean install of a new set. Wondering if I should run the MA70 fogs, or break down and get some nice rally-ish PIAA round fogs :)

As for the camera equip. Just a Canon 40D with a crappy lens and a $20 walmart tripod (I hate it). I forgot to take my white balance off from a setting I had while shooting my little bros football game, that's why they are pretty bad, ha ha. I didn't bother photoshop-ing them either except the plate.

40d works. Half the people I know with nice cameras, don't even know how to operate them...thus, someone who knows what they are doing can still put the 40d to good use. I use the D3000 and haven't found myself to be limited from it yet. I recommend getting a 55-200 lens too, you'll love it, and throw on a polarized filter while you're at it to reduce glare.

I use a walmart tripod too, but i just set the timer to 2 or 5 secs to allow time for the tripod/camera assembly to quit shaking/trembling after i press the shutter. This also allows me to set the ISO lower.

I'm not sure how I feel about the round PIAA...your other option also is sticking GT foglamps in the "vents" of the bumper.

I know how to use the 40D fairly well, but I'm still learning. I rarely ever shoot outside of manual mode, ha ha. Right now I'm messing with white balance to try to master that. I just pick one feature at a time to learn, that way I know all the ins and outs! The lens I have right now is just a 28-135mm and I have a plain UV filter on it. It works for now, but once I have money to spend on the camera, new lens will be coming!

As for foglights, I like them to be in the lower grill area more so than the side vents. Just personal preference :)

I agree, I like them more towards the center in the center grill too...when they light up at ngiht, it looks pretty nice.

As always, lenses are more important than the body.

My 40D has ~100,000 shots on it (most taken in harsh outdoors conditions), still going strong.
