Reason I did it? yellow works better on fog and rain plus in my country all older cars had yellow lights so it stuck with me.


in hindsight, i probably should have used a slighty different color, this one seems slightly greenish, then again, the paint was called lemon yellow. I might go for a lighter, less green yellow to make it more subtle. it's glass paint from an arts n craft shop, 2 bucks and took like 2 minutes to do. im also going to niteshade my corners and tails. just wondering if this looks like shit and if I accidentally riced out my already borderline rice camry. Im not too concerned about the legality of it since in my state the code allows amber and white lights and i think these go under amber, also I got historic registration which means that i cant get a "fix it ticket" since my car is not required to pass safety and emission inspections. Be honest, brutally honest, if it looks like dogshit, tell me.

Looks okay imo, but I'm not big on yellow fogs to begin with. So it's like meh for me. If you know you don't like, change them, because it seems like you don't.

they looked like a highlighter blew a load on them lol. the original paint was called lemon yellow


the greenish part popped out real bad in the sun so i took some tail polish remover to them and cleaned them out. redid them with a different yellow, i'm more on the content side now.


went over to the corners with them too. the camera really doesnt show how highlighter green the first color was, this new one is more subtle and more amberish. thanks for all the input.

cause this is just a cheap 2 second mod until I can actually take the time and have the money to put relays and upgrade my wiring harness for lights, turn the corners to parking lights and flashers to fog. thats all something that I want to do at once pluss it takes no time to take acetone (nail polish remover) to the headlights and rub the paint out so I can unmod it need be.

at night time driving around today i gotta say i was pleased. it didnt kill any distance from how the lights where before but they had that yellowish tint that I know for a fact i can cut through fog with, also made road signs show up a little better IMO.

telling you man it was like 2-3 bucks and that stuff dries mighty quick too pluss its heat resistant upto around 350 so the heat from the lights wont melt it off. if you get light blue, brush it on a plastic bottle or junk glass you got sittin around just in case that if you dont like it, you find out before putting it on your car. tellin you bro driving around with some loud ass highlighter colored lights was embarrassing today LOL. light spread out coats works best so you dont build it up and move the paint around too much making it harder for light to go through. i redid both lights in the time it took me to smoke a red, about 3 n half minutes so its way easy.
