How about mini projectors into Type S fog lights ?

I am thinking to get one of the mini projectors out there to retrofit into our Type S fog lights but just curious has anyone done this mod before ? I am asking for your own experience not because of you "heard or " have seen". Please share if you've already done it.

Thanks,

Andy

Finally ..... is the morimoto matchbox projectors only option here ? Why not get different projectors and install it ? And what do you mean by this " just haven't found the type to do it " ?

Did you bake the fog to remove the lense ? I just finished my CRV headlights with H1 mini projectors. They look pretty good.

I used a heat gun because it was small enough.

I have Lexus ES 300 fog lights in mine. To be honest there isn't much room to fit a mini projector in these fogs. I've seen people use Nissan Maxima projectors. The one thing I would worry about is how much the projector sticks out of the rear. My drivers side does smash into the air filter of my CAI.

Nate, this is a matchbox projector so it should be smaller than the mini one . I haven't got it yet but I will update this thread...stay tune. what year is your ES300 fog lights ? Im guessing your using the yellow projectors from 92-97 ES300..correct ? If so, any pics ?
