DIY:OEMish style DRL/Fog light Highbeam area

I meant wattage so it won't blind people like how normal high beams will.

I converted them to 9006 for that reason.they are technically normal lowbeam power,I chose Hyper yellow due to its best in fog and rain..so I made them Into Fogs more than DRL.
there stage 1,OEM 55watts bulbs.If aimed properly,Dont see any issues.but some people are very annoyed with oncoming lights and flash you regardless.

Re: DIY:OEMish style DRL/Fog light Highbeam area

^very good question sir.
You have to sand down the 1st ridge of the bulb.then slide down the o-ring back.and it fits..takes 5seconds to do with a dremal.

Re: DIY:OEMish style DRL/Fog light Highbeam area

Lame...I just realized I can't to this. Originally, I was thinking of doing this to have DRLs. But then if I decide to run my fogs at the same time as my headlights, I'll technically have three sets of lamps running at the same time...which would be illegal IIRC. Unless I can figure out how to run a switch to toggle them on and off. Oh well, I'll try to think of something...
