DRL Mod......pls help

I recently purchased an SVT from the US. I then exported it to Canada, now along with the safety and emmissons testing I have to get done, I also need to have Daytime running lights set-up on the car as well. Is there anything out there that is just plug and play or is this going to be some new wiring job that will have to be performed. I thought of tapping into the power running from the ignition, and running it to the fog lights. Not sure though. Here she is. All the way from Milwaukee, to Windsor Ontario Canada.

Canadian Tire just installed a $45 kit to make the fogs my DRLs at the same time they did the federal inspection.

The federal inspection is included with the $200 import fee. The provincial inspection is extra, and I can't remember what the DRL's cost above and beyond the cost of the kit. It was just labour though.
