    Changing my fogs on Sat but been reading several ways to do it. Neither one seems easy to do in the winter

    By far the easiest way is to remove the headlights and just reach in.

    The best way in the winter is to warm up the car first.

    I assumed you were cold..
    Nothing you are working on gets hot.
    Warm car radiates heat.
    Keeps you warm.

    If you're pulling the headlights, it probably is best to warm things up. The headlight clips under the edge of the bumper cover and it's a tight fit. You could crack the cover if you try to pull the headlight when it's really cold.

    Yeah,
    There is that too.
    I don't have too much of that here.

    Oh I enjoy after you think you have it thawed out and you put it on the jack and as you slide under it that last drop of salty slime water drips down into your ear !! :meh:

    I found whenever I work on a ford car there is always that one screw that gives me trouble..why do they use plastic screws to hold things together? Can't they use regular bolts like the other 2 they used and not plastic clips

    There is no actual support needed at that point.
    They are just filling a hole. :)

    Which is better PIAA a or silver stars?

    It is just a brand choice.
    I have had very good luck with both.

    In this case I wanted a very yellow light.
    Of the top brands only the PIAA had 2500K.
    Maybe I didn't look hard enough.

    Turns out our headlight are permasealed. Have to find someone willing to cut them open to retrofit it...

    ZXE bulbs (low/high/fog) with stealth amber 3157 bulbs. Definitely cleans up the front!

    That's the right way to have HID's. Which projectors/shrouds did you go with?
