foglamps: yellow-painted lens or pure yellow bulbs?
« on: July 30, 2010, 07:48:58 PM »
need your opinion/suggestions on this:

i have a suzuki swift and one of the foglamp bulbs already conked out and i haven't replaced it yet (i'm not using them lately) but now that i'm thinking of fixing it up again... the idea just crossed my mind:

which would provide better/brighter light output?

1) paint the lens yellow (like those who offer amber/yellow/cleaning on the headlights and foglamps) and use a brighter bulb like the osram nightbreaker

or

2) just buy another set of pure yellow bulbs (euroline, polarg, etc)

thanks :) :)

pure yellow bulbs from polarg is still much better than just painting the lens yellow.

since the paint on the lens will later fade.

You have two choices:

1. Buy the best kind of white bulb of your choice. Paint the bulbs with DUPLI-COLOR METALCAST YELLOW.  One coat will do, but 2 coats will give you a deeper yellow.

2. If the lenses can be removed, you can paint the inside part of the lenses with Dupli-color.   

Dupli-color metalcast is highly heat resistant and will not fade. It can be used on engines and brake calipers.
