    You have to bake the housing to remove the original lens. Read up on it. The build threads are very clear.

    I clamped mine and let it sit for 24hrs. Acouple weeks in and I have no moisture in my lense whatsoever. And we've had Tons of rain hail foggy mornings. Just take your time with it and don't rush

    I need to put a 3M clear shield on them to prevent rocks and other projectiles from ruining them. Lexan isn't as hard as I'd like it to be.

    I know you have to bake the housing to get the old lens of but i though the clear lexan had to be heated to make the bend. I cant seem to find any build thread. Maybe one of you could point me in the right direction. I did a google search with CF as my source and came up with nothing..

    Figured I'd post up an update. Sorry about the dirty car. I'll be getting the entire front end of the car repainted shortly.

    any shots with the car facing a wall, just fogs on, it will show the light cut off

    They are brighter then just the regular fogs. The light is directed right where I want It to go.

    Main reason for doing this mod was to modernize the lights. All newer vehicles have projector fog lights and I wanted them too!!!


    And my car is in the shop getting a new transmission installed, and ls7 clutch.

    Possibly fuzzy can upload pics of his against a wall ??? I know he built the same set as what I have here with a set of 4300k hids. Otherwise I'll upload a pic as soon as possible for you.

    Do you guys recall whether the projection blocking bar is supposed to be oriented up or down?
