Now THAT is a good idea! I'd have to get a used set of fogs to mess with. I think the blacked out housing would look great with the small projector. I like it.
As for the SMEs, it may have worked. The original bulbs - they are oval tall bulbs that stick up into recesses in the light guide. The SME wouldn't do that, so not sure if they would get enough 'side light' into the guide to make for even light. Who knows - maybe someone will try it!
BUT - you would still need a resistor mounted inline somehow, so not sure how that would work??
Why would you need a resistor inline? You can get the appropriate voltage SMEs to replace your factory ones. Originally when they started doing the Scion dash swap, they use to install resistors. Now they install the proper SME so the light output is the same. (The center consoles of them does come with a resistor pack, might be a similar need for the new gen Vipers, I'm not sure).
I'm wondering how well those V3 bulbs will work with Gen 2's since our lighting harness is outside the rear trunk of the car (where to put those ignitors)
