    Quite a few of us here have used the Spray on Tint...Works Great!!

    You can get it at Autobacs (Autotoyz) in Stanton...

    Its about $20

    If you want the yellow fog look even when they aren't on, go with the yellow overlays/tint.

    I thought that yellow for fogs actually had better visibility "In Actual Fog". Could be an old wives tale I don't know.:notsure:

    dont know what its called the lettering is in japanese and yup the best place to get them is from autobacs now autotoyz for around 20 dollars jut ask them for yellow tinting spray. To answer your question you have to take out the fog itself and just paint the outside not the inside..Im running the nokia yellow bulbs and tinted fogs so my fogs are as yellow as can be. :cool:

    you dont take the cover off all you need to do is pop the fog light itslef off your bumper... its fairly easy to pop out just kinda tricky to put them back in.
