Yellow Fogs Idea

I just saw this on the Subaru forum I'm a member of.
Before:


Quote:
Here is is after being applied. It comes in a tube and you have to use a fair amount per light (to much is better then to little because you can wipe away the excess with the sponge brush easily by pushing it to the edges. to little and it dries streaky because it DRYS very fast)

I use a black sponge brush from Micheals crafts (medium size, $0.89each) and I used stained glass paint in a small bottle ($6.69 bottle, not the one for $4.00)

It cost me $7.50 to do my foresters fogs and my buddies 02 WRX fogs
After:



Thought I'd share.

I dunno, I would just get yellow bulbs/HIDs rather than painting it.

Personally, I've never really been a fan of the yellow light.... but to each their own.

Just saw this as a cheap & interesting DIY mod.

Lamin-X is better... It's removable, and it actually protects against rocks.

i got mine from this link for my subaru... the protection one is actually pretty thick to protect from stone chips
you can either get pre-cut for specific model or a big sheet and cut your own
http://www.rvinyl.com//foglighttint.htm

Depends on what brand of hid kit you are getting, some actually looks pretty pale. They are not yellow enough

LOL.....that is my buddy's Forester.

Yellow fogs FTW. It is more of a JDM thing than Euro...so yeah. Yellow fogs still do look cool on most cars.

That stuff they used from micheals crafts fades easily and you will have to re-apply every year.

I took a quick shot for you,
This is yellow lamin-x on my car.
sorry about the size i have no idea how to shrink the pic
AND its worth mentioning that the pic doesnt really do it justice they actually look like they are HID's
