I forgot to mention that I did these mods in under 1/2 hour on a 95-97 degree day and immediately drove the car 400+ miles round trip with no temp troubles. I kept the screw driver with me just in case.

I did this mod on my recessed fog lights. The MPG benefit is very small (read: unmeasurable) but I did it to protect my lights from dust, small stones, snow and mud fill-up.

Thanks a lot!

Does anyone have suggestions on how to protect the plastic from UV rays? This is something I would like to do because snow builds up on my LED headlights.
