Re: Foglight housing Warping

Be kind of cool if you could drill some small holes on the backside (toward bottom to also serve as weephole for condensate, although heat does rise, so maybe top slot or something) and a series of small on the front, to allow some of the heat to escape. Imagine those suckers get hot and nowhere for it to go!

Just remember that when you extract heat, you need airflow to move it more than anything (heatsinks for instance just transfer it to the outside), as it doesn't really "disappear" if that makes sense?

Re: Foglight housing Warping

yeah, careful with holes though as they sit rather low and are exposed to lots of moisture. need some kind of vent that dont let the water in.

Re: Foglight housing Warping

True...that's why I was thinking about a hole(s) on the bottom back area (or however it slopes), to allow draining. However, it may not be a good idea to expose the bulb itself to water and moisture?

Re: Foglight housing Warping

i think it already does have small holes. hamze mentioned he used that hole for his wire and was saying maybe that the wire being in the drain is not allowing heat dissipation.
