Foglight housing Warping

Hello,

I have installed LED halos in my foglight housings.. and i 've ran the Halo wires through the ventilation hole. I have had my 6000K Hid's on for a couple of hours, and i realized that the back of the housing ( which i have sprayed in Silver ) is beginning to become bubbly and will eventually peal off..

IS that a common issue whith the fog light housings when we add HID's? or is it bcz i have partially blocked the ventilation passage :S!

I did a seach on some Lx forums, and i've seen many warped Foglight housings even with no Hid's or Halos!

Re: Foglight housing Warping

brother i have a similar result with my headlight low beam bulb cover. it seems as if the paint is burning

my guess is we needed to use high temp paint inside the housings, whether fog or head.

The part of the fog that i've used High temp paint at ( MATT BLACK color ) did not burn at all, just the ( chromish Silver Paint which is not hight temp paint is what burned )

I will search for ( some chromish silver High temp color tommorow, if i did not find, i will Paint the whole Foglight housing in flat black


by the way bro, do you run your halos While you have your beams on? i am afraid that the high temp will burn the LED's, would that be true? :O

Re: Foglight housing Warping

i do run them with the lights on. my crazy logic hears your thoughts but whether halos on or not, halos will be heated.

i also made it so my park lamp never comess on. that bulb only blinks even when lights are on. result lower half low beam side is only halo light

Same here bro i also cut the bulb wire of the Parking lights so only the turn signals would work

I will drill an extra hole today in the Foglight housing to run the halo wires thru, and i will also re-drill the ventilation hole a little bigger, + i will paint the whole housing in heat resistant flat black...

After we partially painted our housings in black, i guess the fogs are now just for show.. the illumination is soo bad... useless

Re: Foglight housing Warping

I didnt take any close up....but they are just like the oem lamps...but are heavier and seem to be extremely well made. They mat blow up tomorrow...but I dont think they will. They dont just have the gunsmoke either...they have the stock looking ones as well. They are a little pricey at $85.99 shipped....

LED's don't like heat while they're on so by running them with the HIDs, you may prematurely burn them out. Can you even see the halos with the HIDs on? I'd play it safe and only run one or the other but YMMV.

Re: Foglight housing Warping

im not hating bro but that doesnt make sense to me.


the halos are inside the headlight. the halos are cool to the touch if you run them seperately. its the headlight bulb makes the heat. SO anytimne the headlight is on, the halos get hot, whether they are on or not. the same can be said for the fogs. the only time heat is generated is when the FOG bulb is on. so to me, it makes no difference when you run the halos. its all about the time the stock bulb is on, head or fog.

in english, the halos will get affected by heat no matter they are on or off. its all about the stock bulbs being on or off.

Re: Foglight housing Warping

Yeah, heat kills whether the LED is on or off, I just heard that LEDs are even more heat-sensitive while on. This could be completely false though *shrug*

I'm just extra cautious w/my LEDs...
