Ok So I saw a person try thins on a ZX3 and the paint burned off. is it becuase of the plastic?

I have an 05 and I believe we have glass lense. but it seems MUCH closer to the bulb than the SVT fog lense. Do you think the paint would withstand the higher temperature?


My second question is..al lof you guys that mentione ou have the Npkya or Huen yellow lights can you post pictures.. thye both have them also in H11 (the 05 foglight) and I would consider going that way rather than buying if thye look good.

Thanks
Igor

Yellow light doesn't reflect back at you as much as blue light. It's also easier on the eyes IMO.

And it looks HOT especially on red, silver and black. Not sure how it would look on blue.

Good luck with it. Pictures of the progress would be great, it would add to the "how to" part of it. That is one thing that I didn't do. I am too impatient to take pictures, and write it all down.

Uh, no. Make sure you spray in a place with some ventilation. Sounds like the fumes might be affecting you already.
