    Projectors designed to be exposed to the elements (like most auxiliary halogen projector foglights such as Hella Micro DE, Hella Optilux, and most sealed Hella or Valeo low beam projectors) seal the gap between the lens and the lens holder, and they have a built in venting/breathing mechanism.

    Projectors designed to be mounted inside a housing may survive depending on the actual environmental exposure, but isn't likely to be as durable in the long run.

    @OP: all that shiny metal makes it look attractive for some reason.
    It does doesn't it. haha

    Yes, I was talking about this retrofit that I first saw the idea from: http://www.hidplanet.com/forums/show...-Mini-H1/page2
    I would still make my own since I plan to use this for my next and most looked forward to retrofit I will be doing for my car.

    Now this might be exactly what I'm looking for! Hmmm... gives me lots of ideas.

For me up here in Northern Ontario, it can swing from above freezing to below freezing in a matter of hours, I'd be worried about water getting in then freezing more than damage to the lens themselves.

    Fog need to be very wide and dont require to throw light far in fron of the car. Low and high beam need to spread the light tottaly difrentlly so dont mix frogs with horses

    I'm gonna do LS430, biXenon with 50w ballasts for my next fog retro.

    People are going a little crazy with fog lights, lol. FXR's would be a bit much, no?

    I never had moisture problems with my OEM projector fogs. However over time the lenses will get sandblasted from road debris. Especially up here. Its a problem easily solved with some 3m.

    Eventually I am going to go with FXR 3.0's for my foglights.

    That's pretty cool. I need something like this for my bike project unless I can find a housing for this flat shield LS460R.

    high beams on your fogs is a personal choice. You may gain some more light but I wouldn't set out for that setup just to have it. And no, you don't want to run the fogs on high beam mode because you'll blind everyone in front of you

    ^My exposed projectors are OEM equipment on my fusion.. I think if it was that big of an issue for ford they wouldn't have ran them as long as they did. Especially back home in colorado where it can be 80 degrees today and 5 degrees tonight

    I have about 40k miles on my exposed projectors and no major issues. I can take photos of them tomorrow but yeah, nothing to be worried about.

    Anywho, looks interesting. Who’s going to try?

    Yes, obviously I wouldn't want to leave the lenses open to the elements either.
