    Looks good. Hard to tell they are there. We need to have a JAX meet.

    :UPDATE:

    IMO.. the first thing you need to do is get rid of the DRL's... no HID fogs should be allowed to run with that amber shit...

    I have DDM 55watt @ 8000k.. Maybe slitherjoe, ahhhhu or LiqVen could vouch that they match the stock low beam pretty well... pics don't do them justice in imo..

    Low beam & fogs

    Just Fogs


    remember i have smoked lenses so results may vary



    stock vs smoked

    That's the plan. Exams end in a few weeks and I can't wait. And thanks for offering the help. From what I've heard from everyone it's real straight forward. Will definitely be catching the next meet with you guys.

    Do most people take out the cover in front of the fog light? I have mine apart right now about ready to put the tinted lexan on, so now is the time to do it.

    Re: Pics smoked fogs

    i think your referring to the black reflector that goes in-front of the stock fog bulb.. My fogs didn't have that reflector.. i don't really know why.. i bought them used off another forum member unopened..

    I wish i did have this reflector because my fogs are pencil beams.. i would rather them cast out to the sides.. but i guess it comes down to preference... what type of beam you want and if you have the bulb clearance in the housing.

    thanks

    FOG LIGHT AIMING PROCEDURE:
    1. Make sure that all components of the car are in place, such as spare tire, 1/2 tank of fuel.
    2. Jounce the car to settle suspension.
    3. Park the car on a level surface 25 feet (7.6 m) from the target screen.
    4. Measure the distance from the floor to the center of the foglamp.
    5. Using the measurement in step 4, mark the horizontal centerline on the target screen directly in front of the car.
    6. Start the car to level the suspension.
    7. Turn Fog lamps on.
    8. Through the opening in the front air deflector below the fog lamp aces the fog lamp vertical adjuster.
    9. Adjust the fog lamp up or down until the top edge of the high intensity zone on the screen is 102 mm (4 inches) below the horizontal centerline marked in step 5.
    10. Turn off car/fog lamps when complete.

    Hmm, guess I'll leave that reflector in then. I never use my fogs anyway so it probably doesn't matter.

    The smallest sheet my local hardware store had (in tinted) was 18x24 or something like that so I have enough for a second set. If anyone wants to buy the second set from me let me know.

    you will be surprised how blue 8k is going to be when running 55w kit..
    im running 55wat 6k in my halos and my fogs and fogs considerably come out more blueish.

    Re: Pics smoked fogs

    Here is another update after a bunch of PMs with questions..

    LENSES

    IMO,Thickness doesn't really matter to much, just use your judgement nothing to thin... MY YGMS lenses are thin and they have led up great. You need a sheet of Lexan that is at least 8-1/4 in Wide X 8 in Height..Then you will have to trim the lenses down to 8in wide X 7-5/8 H..Your going to have to heat the Lexan up in the oven and bend it in slightly from the sides.. so it concave like the OEM lenses..



    The cuts don't have to be perfect either they are hidden by the bumper.. BEST ADVICE... fill in the void left by the original lenses with epoxy almost to the top.. let it sit for a day..USE 50-100grit sand paper on the outer edges of the lenses and the fog housing to promote adheasion.. dont go crazy and dont get sloppy.. Then Mix your epoxy, apply it and USE as many CLAMPS as possible.. I only used 4... i should of used more.. i had to fill in voids with epoxy when the lenses are curing. so learn from my mistake... Finally dunk test them by filling a shallow pan with water and dunking the face of the fogs into the water.
