he wants them yelllow. not white. i think some race shops carries spray paint for the lights. i baught some red ones for my rear blinkers on my 92 240 and it looks clean. it looks like it came out of the factory that way. but the spray was kinda expensive.... 20 bux for a small can....

Please reread RedS14SE's second post under this topic.

He wants to make his yellow lights white....
As in, he no longer wants his yellow light yellow. He wants the lights that he currently has, which are yellow, to be white, rather than yellow. White lights are prefered by him, but he currently has lights that are not white, but yellow instead.

Got it?

You can use the lense fromm a 91 or the first Gen Mits. 3000GT. Just go order the lense part from a Mits. dealer I believe they are the exact same size diameter.

I take it you have a 95 or 96 since 97s are white. I believe all you have to do is switch the yellow lens with a clear or white one; how you replace the lens, I don't know...

PIAA make yellow bulbs for the 240's for fog lights. They are suppose to be more powerful too.

It is called ION crystal, it is actually Amber.

Switching to a 97-98 foglight would not be cost-effective, it doesn't fit the car and the parts are more expensive. There is a way to make the 95-96 lights clear, I have done it twice, on my car and a friend's, but it is very involved, requiring a lot of work and an extra set of lights. I have an old pic of mine, unfortunately a rock hit one and I went to aftermarket lights. Less work.
