    Thank you very much for the compliments! Interesting how you point out that it looks like a VW dash, as that is exactly the look I was hoping to achieve

    I used red bulb covers, aka "condoms" to cover the lights. They can be purchased from www.partsexpress.com (search for "lamp covers") I bought 4 bags of the 5mm (.2") and 2 bags of the 3mm (.12") This ended up being more than I really needed, but they break easily and are so cheap that it's worth buying extras. I'll work on writing up a how-to on it, but that will take a while because I'm in the middle of doing a write-up on my headlight mod (Which should be finished this weekend, hopefully )

    Thank you both for the good words

    Write-up is on its way, ASAP. It's not that hard to figure out on your own though, if you know how to take the dash apart. I just fiddled around until I found all of the lights.

    The pictures are blurry because it's nearly impossible to hold the camera steady while the shutter is open for a full second. I went to buy a tripod the other day, but none of the places I went to had one that I liked. I might have to hit up ebay for one, then I'll be able to hold the camera steady and use the longer shutter speed shots more effectively.

    Yes, the fog and cruise switches use the same type of bulb covers as the rest of the car. It's pretty self explanitory, just pop the switch out and take off the green cover, and replace w/ the color of choice. I changed mine to red tonight after I put my new fogs in (PIAA Ion Crystals ROCK!)

    I see. You just wanted to prolong the exposure. Ok.

    Got a pic of the fogs?
