How would you re-seal them to make watertight again? but could be another good idea :)

Looks sweet mate.

Might be the pictures or my eyes, but is some of the reverse light leaking through to the adjacent compartment there?

Yea, it does a bit, it's hard to get a tight fit with the plate inside the light due to the shape, i might be able to seal around it with something, will have a think :)

Ive just put a saw into a UK white and EUR fog.

Right from the top down thrue the middle.

The thing is to sand down the cut line, and then fill that with super glue that is transparent. Then cut it right off, and put some clear coat allover the whole of the light.

But mine is still prototype nr1

Yeah know what you mean, it's really awkward working into those small areas...have you tried something like epoxy putty maybe?

That looks well good. Did ya manage to get the other side done? Just wondering if ya had to use another clear lens and did it fit in the other side without being butchered too much?

What a great solution! But might I suggest using the fog lights as extra break lights?=) Maybe with a switch turns em from fogs to break lights or back;)
I think that looks nice=)
