Better to have rained on his parade, than his neon! :D

But doesn't that cut the visibility of the fog lights? I like fog lights since they illuminate the road better for me while not blinding oncoming drivers.
My black housing headlamps were blinding people since I had random people shine their brights at me, turns out they were aimed up high. Never thought about adjusting them, so I adjusted them down. No issues since with people flashing their brights at me.

Honestly I don't run the foglamps much until I do this rewire: https://www.kinnettickreations.com/mfs-relay-rewire
The factory MFS just has too much going to it. I had to replace my MFS switch due to getting melted on my old SRT-4. The OEM harness connector looked bad but still worked. I think the more you use the brights and fogs the more chance it will heat things up? That rewire looks to be the fix. Not really concerned about output since I don't plan on doing HID's ever on my Neon. I think a nice sylvania silverstar is good enough for me.
The aftermarket foglamps are just for looks and to tie in with my black housing hedlamps.

I have been tossing around the idea of putting stone white eyelids on my ride like this one

Its a 5050 for me:
Gives the front end a mean, sinister look.
But then I feel it is kind of ricey. Sticking a piece of fiberglass on your headlamp.
I ran the fiberglass ones on my silver car and I think it just looks so killer.
But I love the clean look without them.
I feel adding them makes others think you are more of a toolbag trying to make your neon look angry.

I had one fly off on the interstate because I used the wrong type of double sided tape and it was funny and pathetic at the same time when it happened. Then when I got to my destination I look at the headlamp and you see tape on there. Kind of like a bald man who wears a wig and it flies off on a windy day. How embarassing to know that you got a wig and tried to cover up your bald head in the first place instead of just letting it shine.

The comb over flapping in the wind is just as bad. :lol:

It's like a dead bird on the road, and the wind keeps lifting one wing.

Decent day yesterday, decided to throw on the 5zigens with the 13 yar old tires. Got new hub centric rings for the wheels since I needed them. Got it on the interstate and the old tires ride pretty smooth I was surprised. Seem to hold air great.

"Racing Drivers Requests Enable ProRacer" LOL! Ordered new closed faced tuner lugs.

Feel like I am back in 2005 with these wheels haha. I like em, but I still like my RPF1's better.

Oh I weighed them too with tires. tires vary in weight depending on style and compound etc. RPF1's have 235/45/17. ProRacer have 225/45/17

RPF1=40.4lbs
ProRacer=43.8lbs

Not much of a different.
