    Interesting. It looks like they maintained the grey surround that everyone hates so much. Did you get a good eyeball on the high beams? It looks like you could throw an extra projector in there and run quad headlamps (six projectors total, if you count the fogs).

    Yeah there's more then enough room to do that forsure. Just cut out a hole for the projector and silicone it in. overall wouldn't be too hard I'd think

    What did you use from the front of these fog lights? It looks killer, what I'm wondering is I want mine tinted since its a black car and I'm wondering if VHT will work on just a piece of acrylic. Did you just pop yours into the oven to remove the factory front glass?

    I used fairly thick plexiglass actually. Then used a heat gun and clamps and silicone and slowly bent it and let it sit for 24 hours. So far so good.

    I couldn't find any other suitable materials at the time, so I'm hoping they don't crack or anything.

    To remove the factory I put them in the oven for about 4-5 mins and slowly pried off the oem lense, and continued through that procedure till they were off.

    I absolutely love how they look. To me personally makes the front end look a little more modern, and the projector fits perfectly into the fog light housing, still keeping the signal light and daytime running light perfectly functional.

    Well done, very sexy!

    I think I will follow your lead once again with this project! Did you pick up the projectors from e-bay? I have my stock ones out of my headlights, wonder if those would fit.

    Haha I'm glad I can help you out !!!

    I bought my projectors off eBay for 70$ with the CCFL 7000k halos. And just bought a 35 w 6000k hid kit and installed those.

    Working on my own right now. Bought the foglamp cores off a wrecked CTS on eBay for $50 apiece. Need to do a water resistance test, and I'll probably have pictures up this weekend, along with the Forgestar F14s. Bought the thickest Lexan I could find at Home Depot...it's over 1/4" thick!

    Do you guys bend the replacement lexan or do you just leave it flat? I want to attempt this mod but if bending the clear plexi to fit is in the project forget about it. Also do you just use silicone or somthing of that sort to hold the lexan on. Thanks

    You use a silicon based epoxy and clamp it down all the way around. That creates the bend--it can't happen any other way. Do a couple of Google searches and you'll find a ton of build threads.
