Default New Fog/Driving Projectors

So after seeing Rob'* (corvettecrazy) new projectors he got and like them Allot!!!
I decided to get a set.

They are maid by Blazer, Can get them on Ebay for around $35 shipped.

They have a very nice cut off. and are NOT blue.

They have a Blue Filter on them so they look a little more yellow witch is better for Rain and Fog/Snow Driving

They Come with 37.5Watt 894 Bulbs but you can get 50Watt ones witch im going to get soon.
They install pretty easy, you can use the stock mounting whole on the 92-99 Bonnies. and they sit in there Okish, that not goig to fill up the whole hole but thats Very hard to do with Projectors unless you make a shroud.







Ok here are some pic of them.








Ok heres the one F'ed up part about them, they made the two plugs WAY to close together, so i had to extend them. but they look really nice after i did so, as seen in Pic#2






Ok now for the Installed Pics

That'* pretty frickin sweet. I had thought about retrofitting those into stock fog housings actually. I really haven't researched it at all, but one problem I see though is the lens of that housing has little diffusers right at the center if I remember. How did you mount yours, Rob?

Can you just run them off the factory wiring instead of using a relay?

I mounted mine in a stock fog bracket hole. (same way ryan did)

yes doing it into the stock housing would kind of suck because of the center peice. I was doing to see what it took to toss a different set of fog projectors into cyberwhites...but there is a LOT of metal that just chills behind those sucker and my dremel and I weren't up to the task the day I was looking into it.

assuming you leave the 37.5 watt bulbs in the projectors you could run them off the stock wiring no problem because stock fogs are also 37.5 watts per side.

I can't remember seeing any installed close-ups with the lights off on either of yours, but as far as making a shroud goes...what about using a flat piece of painted plexi or acryllic to fill in the gap around the fog? Not sure how easy that would be, but I just had that thought.

it would be super easy....but it goes back to me being lazy and the fact that I dont really care what people think about how they look cause they work freaking awsome
