I'd like to change my fog lights from yellow, to [^]Green on my 19[8]2 240D
Any ideas on how to make that happen?

What's up?

First of all.. I don't understand why you'd wanna do that hehe ;)

but I suppose you could find the yellow lights/white lights and paint the lens clear green from the inside. Problem is.. how do you find clear green paint that is heat resistant (those lights get HOT)

or maybe you could just buy the clear fog lights (pre-82 cars or something) and drill a small hole (if possible) in the reflector and put in a small super bright green LED's that come on w/ the parking lights! That way you get green LED's all the time but you get fogs too when you need them :)

Why I would want to do that...

'cause honestly, she'd look really good in green.
I use the fog lights a lot and aesthetically theres really not much to improve on (other than repairs), but the green definitely fits her personality (and [:p]the drivers).

Heat resistant paint... Hmmm... do you think colored gels, like those for studio lights, would work?

Yes, they could easily ticket you that way

In Bettendorf, land of the "Ticket Nazis" people are ticketed frequently for that kind of stuff. I bet if you painted the lights green, it would not only be "inpersonating and officer" (or some B.S. like that), it would also bring the lights out of D.O.T. specs. I know here, many people are ticketed for those really annoying blue, bright HID lights, because the lights do not follow D.O.T code. (Not that ticketing the morons is a bad thing, in that case. :)

If you had called the police and said someone was selling illegal drugs in exchange for cash or stolen goods, there likely would have been no response.

It's because of all that BS that I left SoCal.
"F" the whole stinking state. I hope ol Terminator becomes the gov, maybe he'll fix things. Then maybe "I'll be back."
