I want to take mine off and get the housings painted body color.

am I correct in that all I have to do is remove the 2 screws and then take the wiring harness off the lights?

I want to get it painted but don't want some body shop charging me extra $$$ on labor to remove and then re-install them

thanks for the help

Well i just installed my OEM fogs on last night, and it seems that u can just take off the two side screws. I believe u will have to take everything off the housing in order for the shop to paint. AND DIY save money, very simple.

what would i need and how would I do it myself?? I've never painted any auto stuff before.

If anyones done it DIY let me know how it turned out and how I should go about doing it.


on a side note my car is PWP and i plan to get a CF hood. would it look better to leave the fogs black or paint them white like I've been planning?

You should get them painted, it will look a lot better. Mine are painted but I had a shop do it.
