Default Fog Lights

I'm fabricating a set of fog lights and enclosures for my Cross Country. Need opinions on which style would look better. I like the rounds but the rectangular ones might look good too... Opinions?

I'm a fan of the round ones. That said, I have square ones on mine.

I'm making the pods now out of fiberglass... How did you mount yours up? Has someone already made this part? Would save me a bunch of time if I could just buy an enclosure. I just want it to look like it's part of the fairing like on a sport bike...

I prefer the "slotted" lights(lower pic), they match better with the headlight and general look of the XC

Rogotoko I can't make out much from those pics but am intrigued by your use of the word "pods" and that it's being mocked up for a bike with forged bars (like mine). I want running lights and even went so far as to order some rectangular led units but now can't decide where to put them. Do you have a sketch of the pod you're planning?

I only have what I've shown and a picture in my mind. I'm pretty good with fiberglass work and my intent is to make these so that they will 3M tape to the fairing. I'll probably make a small hole to feed them but may consider inconspicuously running the wire without drilling. I want them to look like they came from the factory that way. Whatever I do, I'll keep the mold in case anyone else wants a set.

,,,oh and I was using the term "pod" cause it's what we call them for custom speaker enclosures.
