Interesting approach...I would be interested to see what they look like on the car...to see if they stick out to much
It sticks out a little but not that noticeable unless you know what your looking at.
If you rotated the lamps themselves 180*, that means that the beams now shine up into the eyes of other drivers instead of down onto the road where they are supposed to. So then you aimed them even higher?
I understand your concern, I guess I sould clariry, after I rotated them 180 degrees, they were aimed at the sky, so then I lowered them BUT "aimed them a little higher" than what they were stock. The focal point still sits well below the cutoff of my lows; as you may know, fog light reflectors are designed to spread the beam wider for a shorter distance, and in case youre wondering, these round reflectors are simmetrical, so it's not like I am flipping the cutoff on them. Yes, they are bright with the 9005s and higher aim (actually almost brighter they my HIR lows), but I'm not one of those drivers that drives with fogs on while in the city. I use the fogs while in back roads to light up the foreground, if ever find myself wheeling in the dark or if there is uhhhh... fog.
the aim adjusts the light mount, not the light. The light can rotate in the mount.
No, the adjusting screw does aim the actual lamp up or down, the mount is fixed to the bumper cover, but the lamp does "rotate" up and down in the mount.
