Some do that. Others use stained glass paint from the hoby store.

Yellow Fog Lamps are unnecessary

Yellow fog lamps aren't used nowadays except for a retro look. All modern fog lamps use white light.

Looks like the Lamin-X covers for the Gen2 fogs are $17.95. I might just have to do that!

they have sets of laminate on ebay for like $8. from 3" up to like 8"

i must strongly disagree with yellow fogs are only for retro looks. for one, I've always been too stubborn to follow the crowd ;) . for two, for those of us that get snow in the winter they are absolutely AMAZING! see every little bump in the snow. also they heighten the visibility of road lines in dry or wet conditions as well because yellow is a contrasting color (why most aviator sunglasses are yellow/amber) just my 2 cents. i am WAY pro yellow fogs!

Whats the point of it? does that light help with any situation. i heard once that it is supposed to reduce glare on snow.

the point is just that. it heightens contrast. its actually an optical science theory. for example people with macular degeneration will generally wear blue blocker sunglasses (they look yellow) in the day and it helps to enhance the look of street lights even.

now for us subaru'rs it enhances the road in front of you (or however far your fogs shine) in literally any scenario. on-road, off-road, wet, dry, snow, fog, etc. i immediately noticed that even faded road lines show up VERY well. its a very comforting feeling to me.

in a word, just amazing.

I used Rvinyl. Hate the look against my paint color, bulb just burned so I'm going to pull them and use yellow bulbs. To each their own

I tinted my fog lights recently with yellow Krylon stained glass paint, and then installed 40 mill Lamin-X Film on top to protect them, looks great!
