Good way to make those foglights into something more useful to light the road.



STEP BY STEP DIY:

Tools/Parts Needed:

97+ Foglights
HID Blazer Foglights from retrofitsource.com
880 6000k HIDs
Heat Gun/Oven
Screwdrivers
Dremel
Grinder
Silcon Glue/Rubber Hoses
A Whole DAY of work and beer =)

1) Take your fog lights off your car.. if you dont know how to do this.. search the forums or dont even try this...

2) Prep your projectors you will need to grind off these areas to make sure they fit into the Fog Lights

OPTIONAL: Here you have 2 choices... Risk the look with rock chips on the freeway.. or put the stock lens back on to cover your projector...

Cutoff: (The extra light you see on top in the middle is from my TSX not the Fogs... The Fogs overpower my TSX.)

You will not be disappointed. Those are actually the same exact ones I retrofitted into my 92 turning lamps, only difference is mine have the multi-colored lens. The light output and cutoff line is excellent!

I was contemplating on using the blazer or R1 projectors. Please do share a cut off photo once eveything is buttoned up. Great progress so far.
