moving turn signal

lol, I dont think any one ever looks in my "looking for other mods" post so i figure I should ask on a new one. i want to use black vinyl on the orange so i would like to move the turn signal to the running lights like this can it work? I think it would be a good mod to do next

Actually you are wrong...if you put black vinyl it will block it off completely. Window tint will not.

The area where you are going to move your turn signals into is your fog light area. Why would you want to move them there? If your foglights are on you wont be able to see the blinking.

i put some vinyl in there b4 just for kicks, and it shoed right trough, and window tint definitely does show.

as for the fog light area, well ususally u never have high beams on and turning, and if you are turning you have them off not to blind someone, lets face it if you have highs on either way and person is facing u they likely wont see your bliker anyways, which is bad already (or unsafe)

so maybe take the highs off completely?

I didnt think I realy used the fog lights and why would i have both lights in there? im not going to cut a second hole i will take the fog light out and put the turn signal in there and just use black vinyl because its cheaper and you dont need a heat gun to put it on or any thing like that its just like a sticker

Chrome vinyle might work better. Just add a clear/silver bulb.

Don't forget that you will need to do some rewiring to get the turn signal to work in the fog light position.
