    I like the idea of doing it to the Hellas, but it brings me back to Brunes's point about it filtering your light and therefor diminishing overall brightness? I suppose the ascetic appeal is the only benefit.

    I wouldn't do this to driving lights... just the fogs to cut through the fog/snow/rain.

    yellow has a longer wave length. This allows it to travel farther in adverse conditions such as rain or fog.

    Thread revival! haha Just wondering what the preparation was for this mod. On the krylon site it tell you the prep for different surfaces. It says to sand or scuff almost every surface listed. Im assuming thats not what you do to the fog lights. Im guessing just clean them real well?

    I just washed mine with soaps and the yellow side of a sponge. Let it dry. Be careful though, they scratch easily.

    Excellent idea... offers a user controlled level of transparency. Hey, just like the Obama administration! It's good to be politically correct in this day and age, or so I'm told. :rolleyes:

    Seriously tho... this technique does look better than the appliques. I am doing it!
