    My stock fogs started fogging up, so I bought the yellow ones off of ebay and installed them today. Lamin-x is cheaper for the same look. Oh well -- some pics:

    Very Nice!!!!!!!!!!! I love the yellow fog light look. I had yellow fogs on my rsx before I bought my truck. But it was the clear fogs lights, then the lamix film. How much did the yellow fogs from ebay run you? I plan to get the lamix film today and put them on sometime this week!

    UPDATE:

    This yellow fog kit is GARBAGE. I've driven about 500 miles with these installed. I started to notice that the lights were shaking while I was driving.

    Well, I checked them out today -- the plastic "nipples" broke off! ARGH... Buyer Beware. You're better off having the stock Fogs an putting Lamin-X on the lenses.

    Dang I didn't even know you bought aftermarket fogs! Hey so when your talking about the yellow fog kit? Did you buy just some clear aftermarket fogs and put the nokya 2.5's in them? Because I know they have actual yellow fogs for our trucks off of ebay.

    Man I am sorry to hear that. I was curious to see how everything was going to turn out. I ended up purchasing the lamin x film last week and put them on my truck yesterday. The film cost about $25 bucks with shipping. I kept my stock bulbs in because I believe if I go to a higher bulb the film will start to develop brown burn marks (this happened all the time with my last vechile because the bulb was to powerful). But overall at night, just using the yellow film puts off a far amount of yellow light. I attached a picture of how it turned out.

    Hey that looks pretty good. I was thinking about getting yellow fogs as well but didn't want to replace my stocks with aftermarkets so I just got yellow bulbs. I might try this lamin x film you used! Mind if I ask where you bought it from?:confused: Also, how did the install go, pretty easy? Never mind on where to get them. Just found some on ebay. Man, I love ebay!!!

    Yeah eBay is the greatest! You might also what to try http://www.lamin-x.com/ to get the sheets of film. The install is very easy and took approximately 45 minutes. I would recommend removing the fog light first because it will be A LOT easier to work the film onto the lens. All you have to do is unscrew the light from the back of the housing and then remove the screw. There is only one screw holding the fog light in place. So once you have removed the screw the fog light just pops out.

    Oh okay cool!!! Thanks! Yeah I will probably take out the whole fogs like you said, easier to work around. I think that's the website I bought it off of. I got the pre-cut ones though instead of the whole sheets.:D

    it was ebay kit for the entire foglight system -- one of my stock fogs had a hole burned into it (don't ask... lol) and moisture got into it causing condensation...

    anywho... ordered a new set today... hopefully get them this week.
