The paint for the fogs are still holding up? I've done it before and all the snow and salt in NY just took the yellow away. You used the same paint as you did the high beams with right?

Yep fogs look good and new even after the snow storms we had this year! And yes I used the same paint for both fogs and high beam bowls

I think just blue/yellow and black look good on any modded car! I'd stay away from red unless you have a heavily modded red car

No problem with condensation build up for me. as long as your re-seal everything back up the right way you should be fine.

Need some feedback, I had a steel Grey, this would look sweet for sure...but with amber corners????

There should be no problem at all. there's no need to re reseal anything unless you have a facelift coupe. all other lights just clip on and off. if you want a clean look get rid of the amber's and go with clear or smoked corners

There shouldn't be a problem with the lights on. unless your driving around with your highbeams on all day. DRL wouldn't effect it.

Nice DIY. I bet this is going to help many people. Oh yeah question - Has anyone try mixing two different krylon spray to get different color? I know you could brush it on or spray it. So, if you could brush it on one coat, technically you should be able to pool large amount of krylon liquid to mix it together. I could only imagine that orange would stop cars cuz it means "Danger this BMW is bad ass".

Anyhow, thanks for DIY.

P.S. Anyone figure out how to make this staining permanent without distortion of color over time due to lamp heat?
