lens paint or lamin-x for oem fog lights

I just got in some oem fogs.. would you use the lens paint or lamin-x . I have a half a can of the spray already from a friend or should i buy the lamin-x for 15 bux, i know its better for rock chips but i heard that it burns the fog.

if you have oem bulbs, then no it won't melt the film. mine only melted when i swapped the nokya bulbs in there. i'm back to stock and thinking of either gettin clear or yellow film.

thanks but i actually got lucky and im picking up a new set for 12 bux from spw. why are you getting rid of the bulbs btw. The yellow looks better with the yellow cover and the yellow bulbs right?

I would go lexus oem capsule but im not willing to spend that much

yea, as gearbox said, the film is likely to burn if u use the diff bulbs, i have yellow lamin-x and noyka arctic yellow bulbs, as long ias u dont leave the car siting there for a while with the fogs on, then ur fine, its when the car remains in one spot for an extended amount of time with the fogs on, thats when the burning occurs, its happened to me on both lights and i just replace the film, its easy as hell to do, and i always keep a sheet extra just in case, but to me, the film looks a lot better then the paint, but either way its up to u, all depends on what u want.

Hi,

All yellow bulb I have seen are 100W, the factory recommanded 55W. Would 100W overcurrent and kill the harness?

thanks

hi,

So you have not burn anything?

Can the 80W bulb survive long (2-3 years), being the wrong wattage?

thanks
