Painted Fog Light Lens

My Warn fog lights are great. Reasonably priced and remote activated... which is kind of cool!
I use them a lot for fog and as projection lights....for saftey.
But they are white....and very bright.
Could not find amber or yellow bulbs so went looking for lens paint.

FOUND Krylons Translucent Glass paint.... developed for Stain Glass Windows.
They must have many colors but all I could find on line was yellow (no Amber anywhere).
Very happy with results.............

Few Cheap Add Ons...

Posted in another thread, but thought it might be good here too...

New user here so I'm not sure if I can post my pictures yet, but I'll share... I've done a few things to enhance on a small budget. I have a 2013 Geko Green Wrangler Unlimited Sport. For about $30 I built a waterproof trunk cover. It also allows me to lock my jeep and keep things in the trunk while out and about (especially at the beach!) and keep things secure. It was a simple 1/2 inch piece of plywood that I measured and cut to fit around the roll bars and snug to the back of the seats. It bolts with 4 bolts (2 on each side) right into the hard top bolt fittings. I had to modify one corner so that I could fit it in place around the bars. Then covered it in a rubber mat and left about 2" of excess rubber off of the edges all around. If it rains the water rolls right off the back! I've managed to keep my bikini cover on all summer (so far) and keep everything fairly dry. It does leak a little around the roll bars, but its way better than having the back open! All for about $30.
Another one that cost me about $20, but has the look of a $1200 upgrade... I had stock silver/grey wheels that came with the jeep. I do have some nice mud terrains on it and really wanted some black wheels, but couldn't drop $1000+ right now. 3 cans of Plasti-Dip and $20 later, I have custom black wheels that look AWESOME! Simply put trash bags in behind the wheels to protect the brakes and interior stuff, used a deck of cards around the rim/tire (best idea my buddy ever gave me!), and put 5 coats on. First coat covered about 25%, second 50%, 3rd 75% and 4th and 5th 100%. This way the spray does not drip and it all looks even. If you hit something or something scrapes your wheel, it will peel, but I keep an extra can on hand and with a quick touch up spray, its perfect again.

Just a few ideas I thought I'd share. More to come I'm sure!

I know somebody did it before but, got a retractable underhood light from a suburban in the pull-it yard. Mounted a strip of flexible led's from the local motorcycle shop to a 3/8 piece of scrap aluminum. Then I countersunk some neodymium magnets from eBay along the back of it and one on the end to pick up dropped bolts. Added a hook from a old piece of tig wire and clear shrink wrapped the whole thing. Works great very bright and can reach all the way around my jeep. Total spent $28

Think your fuel cell is cool and that its rock solid? I used the side tank off a single axle dump truck with step built in and all. It fits perfectly between the rear fenders of my 76 cj7. Held in now with tie down straps but working on metal straps to bolt down. It was free. much better than an expensive fuel cell and the thing will hold like 50 gallons lol.

This is a very long ongoing there. You should look at the post date before you reply. The first post that you just replied to is from 2004.
But on a good note welcome to the forum
