So are you blacking out or smoking the front marker lights? Which ever you decide to do you should do the same with the fogs. I would personally delete them myself.

I went with smoked tiny from Big Worm Graphics, you can check my garage for pics. Great material quality for $99 for all lights tinting package (I think). They are pretty dark at night... Will be getting brighter bulbs soon.

+1 got mine from there too. Looks good and easy to install and there was no deterioration of visablity. They have a bunch of levels of tint.

Don't go with the "smoked" from Stangmods.com. It's not the same, it's brown and not very dark. You have to get Charcoal to match the Smoked from anywhere else. Learned that the hard way.

Front lights tinted with 30%, fogs, tails, signals all done with a tint material that is a little thicker and more flexible. I made friends with the best tint guy in town 10 years ago and we have come a long way.

I would suggest blacked out because that's what I did on mine. Forgot what percent tint was put in it, but it looks great from my perspective.

Fog light brightness is reduced but it's perfect for me because I believe that fog lights are not supposed to be very bright specially way up there where ford placed them.

Went with a bronze smoke, looks like black from the sides, and did not affect the lighting at all.
4 coats of paint
2 coats of clear

i have yellow fogs now. i was thinking about going with the grill that hides the fogs behind it though. i like having the yellow color but was thinking about smkoing them and going with yellow HIDs so you cant see them when they are off. only concern is how yellow HIDs will look through a smoked tint

I would leave them yellow, it gives it a rally and sports look to the car. Or just delete them.

They way i painted them is that when they are on, yellow or white they dont look tinted and they seem clear or yellow tinted, but when off they are, so i could do the same, but i dont have have those yellow round eggs frying on my grill! Lol

well i like the yellow fogs cause they really stand out. they def. are a love/hate thing. but i mainly wondering if i was to buy the grill and hide them behind and take the yellow tint off and just smoke them and use yellow HIDs how it the 2 would work together.

This is just my .02 but why don't you do the hidden fogs with yellow hids with no tint? That way the fogs aren't really visible but at the same time when they are on they are yellow.

the only reason i wanted to tint them if i do that is because you can still see them behind the grill when they are not tinted. i was looking to do completely hiddin and only be seen when on. i was just curious how smoked tint with yellow HIDs would look. i only have personal experience with smoked with 8000k or 10000k HIDS

Have you tried YouTube or Google? I'm sure someone has something on it. Personally I would tint and go 6000k . But its yours .
