Eff Why Eye....... I did my fogs in black and I can't see shat now. Without the reflection inside they become useless. I'm actually gonna re-bake them and return them to innocence. The decrease in light output is nearly 85%... just ain't worth it.

They look good though




I'm going to leave the front and just take the black off the inside.

Definitely all for show. Hell I can't chase shadows in a ten foot circle with those things. Used to be able to see 20 feet on either side with them.

^ They're cornering lights, not fog lights, that's why.

Nice retro on the fogs mate, keep it up

It'd be interesting to see what you can do with the tails. For me I want to try to get an all LED set up for the tails (once I can get my head around voltages and resistors and all that good stuff).

Here they are HID powered...sorry about the lack of pics, a bunch of family was over and i wanted to get it done quick.

Oh yeah sorry about the dirty Lexus too ...ugh black paint i washed it two days ago....


Wiring in the Fogs to their own power source and controlling it with a relay clicked on by the lows.




Weaving the harness....line drop for the L/H fog.




Harness all the way to the right side.




My hairy *** leg and what the fog looks like on the car.




Project complete....HID....blacked out.......turning lamps turned into fogs

Since the factory cornering lights shine light out to the sides of the car instead of straight ahead, how did you go about correcting that?
