    Pics smoked fogs

    I know there are a few threads on this already but they all seam to lack pictures. Since i had never seen pictures of the steps in this DIY, i had been hesitant to do this mod so hopefully this will get someone off the fence and plunge them into mod hell..

    here is ONE of the many the writes up i used:
    http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...ml#post1110020
    thanks svb4. this one was really helpfull

    http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...writeup-3.html

    Well i picked up a set of unused YGMS smoked lenses($50) from a forum member and a set of spare fog light housings from another member($80). supplies cost $9 @ lowes.

    Today i baked my fog lights, disassembled both and was able to glue on one of the lenses. had the oven at 350* then turned it off.. both of the fogs were in there for 6-7 mins then i pulled one out and worked on it till it cooled off and rotated for the one in the oven. just don't rush and keep them hot.. IT went a lot faster then i thought.I got carried away and made some marks and started snipping the divider, and ended up with a decent cut but if i was going to do it again i would have used the first divider to trace a cutting line on the second divider. but its all 20:20 in hind sight,right .

    then i wet sanded the metal divider with 200grit to make it look better and used 220 fine grit to rough up the plastic.. I used Loctite pastix bonder as the main glue with loctite stick'n seal to put on after to make sure everything is waterproof. Im still not done so if you have any questions or pic requests let me know..

    I have the newer ones he had and they are so dark you can't even see the fogs at night they are so dark. I will be getting rid of them and going to sts fogs I think. Looks good and reminds me of how much I hated doing this.

    But I also noticed you took the box that goes around the light off? I'm sure that helps.

    Thanks for doing this writeup. I'm still waiting for a nice warm day when I have nothing else to do to hop on this. These pictures should really help me get these out of the "waiting to go on" section of my signature

    Re: Pics smoked fogs

    no problem c4, just glad i can give back to this forum.. i dont plan on finishing/installing these fogs until the end of may so let me know if you need a hand when it gets nice out..

    sojers.. yeah the OEM metal divider just needs to be trimmed so it doesn't interfere with the lenses..i sanded it down because my tin snips are kinda dull and the cut looked halfass.

    This is EXACTLY what I want to do. Been too lazy (heck, it's been too cold for the last several months!) and have been putting off doing the research on here to properly plan the whole thing. Would love to see this when you're done.
