    Yellow bulbs

    Any one have any idea where to get yellow bulbs for the badge bar mounted fog lights? I've even tried painting them with heat resistant craft paint but it turned brown on top.

    Re: Yellow bulbs

    Actually, if I recall correctly they never really made yellow bulbs for these because Lucas made these with yellow lenses. You will see them from time to time on ebay, rarely.

    They have one BPF bulb in yellow, but it's dual filament:

    You might also try giving Tim Hodgkiss a call, he has the best bulb selection that I am aware of. he might have it in his racks somewhere.

    Re: Yellow bulbs

    I'd recommend using this paint by Krylon. I used it on a M151-series "Jeep" and the results were <span style="text-decoration: underline">very</span> impressive. The US Military in Europe would run yellow headlights, to meet local country highway regulations, and I've always liked they way they look.

    Re: Yellow bulbs

    I called Krylon today and they said it would be good to 120 degrees. Anyone have an Idea what the temperature of a "fog" light might get to? I assume that while moving temps would be okay. I didn't see it addressed on the Jeep sight but I may have missed something.

    Re: Yellow bulbs

    Good question. I would think that a fog light could exceed 120 degrees but I could be wrong. There's another brand of paint that's often used for automotive lights and that paint is shown below. I couldn't find it's temperature rating online however:

    Re: Yellow bulbs

    The lens would probably be right around 120F, the bulb will be &gt;&gt; 120F. I guess you could turn them on and see if you can measure the lens temperature (how long it takes to burn your finger?). With the coating on them the temperature will be higher as it will absorb the non-yellow light as heat.

    Re: Yellow bulbs

    Sure hope I don't have to read those instructions. It does say yellow fog on it so perhaps that would be the way to go if I could figure out where it's sold in the states. I love how they say "Made in Japan" in English while almost everything else is in Japanese. I'll try an internet search. Thanks.

    Re: Yellow bulbs

    I believe Ebay is your best bet for that stuff. A can cost like $30-40 so it ain't cheap.

    How about: "This listing () has been removed, or this item is not available."

    Re: Yellow bulbs

    Here is a possible lead from eBay:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lucas-SLR700S-Sp...=item336e7b8583

    Although this listing is for a pair of complete SLR700 spot lamps, the seller indicates that he will sell them with either clear or yellow bulbs. Maybe he will sell just the yellow bulbs.
