    That looks pretty good. I was thinking of doing darker on top and then a light coat on the bottom to kinda blend it in.


    Hum.....Going to have to wait till I get back from Mecum this weekend anyway. Guess I got more time to think about it.

    I put a line of foam weather stripping (from Home Depot) around the housing to fill the gap between the light and the front bumper. It has held up so far after a few washes and a few months of driving.

    nice. Did you stick the adhesive backing to the ruber trim ring or fog light lense?

    I stuck the adhesive to the fog light lense. It took some trial and error to line it up to the rubber trim ring.

    thanks

    yup, i think its because they have a pencil beam that is really long.i thought they would be the opposite and send light out to the sides since it has no projector.. i dunno

    i just got back from work and realized a few things.

    1. the driver side fog needs to be raised up with that little adjustment screw.. the passenger side it pretty good where it is. im guessing.

    is there a recommended height for fog light beams? like from XXfeet back from a wall the fog beam should be XXft high.......


    2. these fogs are super white and make my low beams look slightly purpleish, its hard to notice at first glance it sounds weird but whatever I really don't care that the beams don't match, i think they look great, i will get some pics when my camera is charged

    Yeah, I know. I was saying that's what he highlighted. I thought you were referring to the lower sentence that was already highlighted in your original post.

    It was just supposed to be some juvenile humor.
