RedSVT 03 Update

As of immediately, I am not longer suggesting or supporting this modification. The paint has not held up well on my foglights, and was removed Friday, August 18, 2006.

I removed the foglight from the mount, and simply scraped the yellow paint off with a razor blade. It is a little time consuming, but it comes right off. If you want yellow foglights for your SVTF, I suggest either yellow Lamin-X or Nokya, Luminics or other aftermarket yellow bulb, or a combination of the two. I am going to go with the Luminics yellow 9005 (modified to fit) and I will see how it goes from there.

Yep, looks good. That first pic in your gallery pretty much sums it up. Mine are yellow just like that. How many coats did you use?

any comments are helpful.
Thanks

I think you can get it in an orange/amber, not sure though. As for the foglights themselves, I am going to have to say this:

If you have a non SVT Focus, or are painting non SVT foglights/lenses etc. you do this at your own risk. I cannot be held responsible for your foglight melting. This mod has been tested on only the SVT foglight. I don't know how this will hold up on the ZX3/ZX4/ZX5/ZTS/ZTW/ST model Focus.

fastzx360 My project cost a lil over 4.50. you can use the gold metalcast without the base coat.(gold itself) I'll take pix right now. had it for about 6 months and still looks good. oh yeah it dries in about 15 min. so you'll be able to handle it not to long after painting it.

RedSVT 03 Yes, foglight mod lets you run highs and fogs at the same time, although it is illegal, and you might get pulled over.

02SVTsilverstreak sweet..can you run the fogs w/ high beams on? and also, ill post pics in a little bit, assuming my computer isnt an A-Hole, and lets me do what i want..

RedSVT 03 No melting here. I run them all the time, except when it is sunny. I have the foglight mod, so I usually cut them on anytime it is not sunny.
