Fog light replacements

I have this type of fog light : https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/i...SqpO5Pnx-lX1rC


My housings are all cracked in the back and destroyed so they don't project any light. I'm looking to replace the housings with something I can retrofit in, as I don't want to pay $200 for crappy non-clear fog lights.

Any ideas? What's my best option that won't cost an arm and a leg.

No other choice for that bumper, get them used on ebay or the parting out section of the forum.

These have literal just giant holes in the back and any chrome that's left is plastered in dirt.

I can't easily mount a projector there or something?

OP, ebay is your friend for these. A lot of people dismantle cars and sell there.
Parts not in high demand such as these fog lights can be found for cheap and in very good condition.
