    Thanks and I used clear silicone adhesive from autozone comes in a gun thing. Its what they recommended in the homemade fogs thread. Worked very good and i have done this twice now (with my 03cts first) and havent had a leak yet! it helped that i heated the lens up a little too and bent it into form before I glued it too so there is no pressure

    If anyone has a spare set of cts-v fogs let me know.
    I also need a passenger side fog light brace.

    Been putting off this mod for a while.
    Still have the WW lenses.

    Already getting called out in a thread. Feels like my local board.



    I am going to have to get this done. Damn it. I wonder if there are a set of lenses out there that some one wants to get rid of........

    Re: Pics smoked fogs

    I went the super cheap way. I bought some clear coat, some VHT nightshades, pulled the markers and fogs out in about 30 minutes. Sanded, painted, cleared, waited overnight, and put it all back together. Does it look absolutely perfect under a microscope? No. Are the fog lights dark now? Yes, because I painted the whole lense. Can you see my turn signals during the day? Sort of. Can you see them at night? Yup. Did I achieve the look I wanted for under $20 and in under an hour total? Yes.

    I figure that I can buy black side markers off of ebay for $39 if I ever decide that mine are too dark. I can also go to STS-V fogs if I ever want to go clear.

    I'll post some pics up of my rattle can job later. It's been two weeks and so far it's held up fine.

    Post pics soon please. I was just talking about this about an hour ago with a guy here at work. If I can get the orage look outta the lights with nightshade then that is the route I will go. I will take the extra time getting the HIDs installed.

    Off to go order the little driving bulbs. Again... what the hell was Cadillac thinking.....

    i went the easier route and just used niteshades over the amber turns and picked up the eBay smoked corners... looks a ton better than stock and the turns shine through the translucent black paint no problem... with a lil patience and proper prep, the VHT product works great.

    I would probably use the nightshade if I was one of those guys that got screwed out of getting his set from yourGMsolutions (or didn't order any for that matter), but I got lucky and he sent me mine, so I'm probably going to do it the old fashioned way
