Yeah now I remember. Friend of mine had a yellow eh.....vizor (?) on his helmet for his motorcycle. Worked fantastic! Just like yellow/orange goggles during snow and fog when skying.

Conclusion: Leave your fogs the way they are Vasyl!

Did some research: yellow, about 35 watts, mounted as low as possible, and perfect horizontal reflector cut off. Take a look at the big over the road tractors that the are run by independent professionals and you will see what the folks that trust their lives and livelihood to the right fog lights use.

Where did you get the yellow lens film. Is it pliable or stiff? How did you install it?

Lamin-X They specialize in film for lights, driving & fog. Its very simple to apply. I purchased cut to size film and I did my IPE 968s as well for a set of winter driving lights. Give me a few minutes and I'll post pictures. Easy, about $25 mailed to me. Works great. Need to go get the camera and load the pics. I got them from "Vividracing" They have ALL sorts of precut film.

Yes; Selective Yellow rocks; there's a link in this Dan Stern report that shows you how to tint a lens to selective yellow using Duplicolor Metalcast Yellow. I did it and it works great.
The film also works great and protects the lens.

BTW, PIAA bulbs aren't worth the cheese.
Read about it here.
There are much better bulbs available for much less money. Remember that lights are for looking with, not looking at.
