Walmart lights

I saw these on another thread
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Blazer-100...Light/15111226

Any body who has these are they good lights for the money. Also I would like to have fog lights is there a way to convert these so they are more like fog lights?

And also I need some help on the wiring I would like to have six of these on a light bar above the windshield and im not very good at figuring out how to wire.

I just got a set of these. I am gonna put an hid kit to them. Wiring will be easy just run power to each on in series. And ground each one individually.

Going to Walmart tomorrow to look for these! Thanks

What grit would you recommend sanding them with? And what's the best way to paint them black and look good?

No sandpaper, fine steel wool is the only thing you should use. I have these lights and they can rust a bit, but so do the KC's I have. If you keeo them polished every once in a while, and just wipe over the chrome with armor all or something like it you will be fine. I have had mine for 5 years or so.

DDM tuning is were I ordered mine. 55w 6000k kit ran 74 ish that is with shipping. Get their wiring kit with the relay it's 15 bucks. Unless you have that stuff already. You will want to run
Power to the lights via a relay controlled by the switch supplied with the lights you bought. The wires in these kits are pretty small 18 or so. Basically I'm doing the same set up. Except with some 12 dollar wal mart lights. Gonna keep the 100 watt halogens from harbor freight as halogens for a bit just gonna upgrade the wiring.
