I got some more done today. Th JB Weld was smooth to the touch, but the silver paint really brought out the contours I'm strongly considering adhering a bezel of some kind to the face since it'* easily removed. That'* another day'* project though. Also, it might not even be noticeable during the day. This shot is extreme, worst case scenario in terms of it being visible, but I'm still not happy yet.
EXCUSE THE NASTY DIRTY BUMPER


Here'* a shot from the back

It started to rain and I barely got a chance to even start aiming them. I know my passenger fog support is bent because the projector beam is rotated. When I redo the faceplate I'll fix that stock fog support too.


Not too bad for a first effort, but I'm not by any means done yet. I'm looking forward to how they look during the day too.
I might also lessen the color mod to bring back a sharper cutoff.

Are those with the bulbs that come in them?

I wouldn't worry about your passenger fog being rotated like that, that'* even a good thing, it'll help light up that side (the no drivers on that side-side) better like an ECE light.

The bulbs that came with them are 37.5 W made by Narva. They don't look quite that white or bright in real life though since the camera had to overexpose slightly. They still look pretty sweet though. I STILL haven't gotten to really appreciate how they look during the day since I start and end work without daylight this time of year :(

Yeah I would, but the only way I could park today didn't allow visibility from the front. From now on though, I'll be mostly commuting by train Weekend!!

Narva is a top rated bulb.

New idea!
A walk to the hardware store and a total of $4.25 got me these. 2" inner diameter. I'm gonna chop them in half and see how they fit.


Edit - Here'* one chopped down. The inner diameter is exactly the same as the exposed projector, but I could have probably cut the PVC a little shorter because now I have to fill a gap that recesses back toward the perimeter. It'll be a 1/8" vertical "wall"when I'm done if that makes sense. It shouldn't even be visible when done.


Stock fog for reference. I think this will REALLY fill out the hole well when I'm finished - at least I hope so


Also keep in mind that when I install these, I mount the projector and snap on the faceplate separately

I think I'm liking plan B a lot better. Silver 'em up, maybe, so they look like reflectors???

Yeah I'm not sure yet....Paint the back face black and the bezel silver, or all silver...hmmmm

Either way I've got plenty more sanding to do
