Fog light retrofit done!

Finally got around to wrapping up foglight retro to match the headlights. I used oem ford fusion projector fog's for the set up with gti-r shrouds sprayed in satin black modified to fit. Unsealed because i never planned on re using the lens for a few reasons. The ford fusion fogs are sealed units and dont require being sealed in a housing. Plus even if i restored the hazy lens it still would be the same after a while. These projectors use h11 bulbs so i bought an h10 to h11 adapter. Contemplating putting an hid kit in there but not sure. Heres some pics let me know what yall think.

Do you mind me asking how much doing the retro on the fogs set you back?
PM me if you don't want to share that publicly.

Thank you. The whole project ran me close to $90. Used om for fusion fog projectors were about $56. The shrouds another $20. Then about $10 in paint and materials. If you wanted to save money you could go without shrouds and shop around for some cheaper protectors.

The ford fusions are the best I've seen yet. Are you still able to adjust them from the back? Care to share how you got them mounted on the bumper?

Yea from the research I've did I think they might be some of the best. Yes they are still adjustable since I'm still using the factory fog light housing and still mount to the bumper the way they would normally do.

Okay from the sound of it it looks like you didn't cut out the adjuster screw in the back. Cool. I thanks. I wanted to use the bmw x5 LED fogs but they would be washed out from my hids on the headlights.

Yea I didn't cut it out. In actuality even if you were to put the fusions in it will still probably be washed out. It would helpful if I were to put hid kit in them. But as they sit right now even with my headlights on you can still see that side and road edges light up a little bit. They're definitely improved from the oem ones combined with my headlights. In reality fog lights are pretty much for looks or running lights now a days.

Oh no, I will have 3k hids in the fog lights and 5k hid retrofits in the headlights. I got my action plan.
