Default DIY: EK9 yellow fog light (99-00 only)

Sure you can paint it with Krylon stain glass paint, but this is just another way to do it.

What you need:
1. OEM Honda Civic 99-00 fog light kit http://robearracing.com/pd_hon...y.cfm
2. Lamin-x yellow sheet 4"x8" http://lamin-x.com/ColorProtection.html
3. Piaa H3 Yellow bulb http://order.store.yahoo.com/c...uw1Ts


Step 1: Go ahead and cut you lamin-x in half. So you should have two 4"x4". Apply one on top of it.



Step 2: Drim around it with a sharp knife or hobby knife.



Step 3: Carefully using a flat screw drive and push in the extra film in like this.



Step 4: That's it now do it for the other one too and it should look like this.

You forgot to tell people how to put the lamin-x film on the fog light lense. Using soapy water?

lense will still be clear but as long as the beam is still yellow it should be the same right? no need for a yellow lense, well it does look nice but why go through the hassle? well its up to you, and how you like your car. It does look nice w/ the yellow lense!
