First I went to Michael's Arts and Crafts and crafts and picked up this for $9.99 a can




then I took my factory lights and wet sanded with 800 grit



Cleaned it up and then sprayed a coat of the yellow



then dried it using a space heater. Then wet sanded again.



Then I cleaned it up again and sprayed another coat. Dried till tacky and sprayed another coat. Then Dried using the space heater for a while so it would cure I also had the light on during this time to help bake the paint on.



I think I might have to do a coat of clear but not sure yet so as it sits





These are regular clear halogen bulbs

Don't care for yellow fog lights, but you did a good job.

Do you use your corners as blinkers? Or what kind of bulb is that? (3457)

The blinker is a cheap eBay switchback led. The white is sposed to go out and it blink orange but it instead blinks orange while the white is on. You get what you pay for. But those won't be in there too much longer I got something up my sleeve.

Yellow fogs are fantastic in the snow for visibility. I bought some yellow bulbs last year that didn't last a season(crap bulbs), this looks like a great option. Good job budday!
