Got mine from SurfnPT.com, they are cheap and easy to install. You can see a photo in the Fall Cruiser Quarterly Magazine on my DC2.

You just need to be careful about the color, some states don't allow anything except white or "amber", whatever that is, could be yellow or orange.

It is my understanding these lenses "fog up" due to condensation that collects behind them. Is this true? [:I]

Why not tint your fog light lenses with the Stained Glass Tint spray that is used on the tail lights, it comes in different colors?

Blue is illegal.

Washington State law concerning turns signals:

RCW 46.37.200
Stop lamps and electric turn signals.
(1) Any vehicle may be equipped and when required under this chapter shall be equipped with a stop lamp or lamps on the rear of the vehicle which shall display a red or amber light, or any shade of color between red and amber, visible from a distance of not less than one hundred feet and on any vehicle manufactured or assembled after January 1, 1964, three hundred feet to the rear in normal sunlight, and which shall be actuated upon application of a service brake, and which may but need not be incorporated with one or more other rear lamps.

(2) Any vehicle may be equipped and when required under RCW 46.37.070(2) shall be equipped with electric turn signals which shall indicate an intention to turn by flashing lights showing to the front and rear of a vehicle or on a combination of vehicles on the side of the vehicle or combination toward which the turn is to be made. The lamps showing to the front shall be mounted on the same level and as widely spaced laterally as practicable and, when signaling, shall emit amber light: PROVIDED, That on any vehicle manufactured prior to January 1, 1969, the lamps showing to the front may emit white or amber light, or any shade of light between white and amber. The lamp showing to the rear shall be mounted on the same level and as widely spaced laterally as practicable, and, when signaling, shall emit a red or amber light, or any shade of color between red and amber. Turn signal lamps shall be visible from a distance of not less than five hundred feet to the front and rear in normal sunlight. Turn signal lamps may, but need not be, incorporated in other lamps on the vehicle.

Gary, I don't know why I listed the turn signal, had a brain fa*rt. Here's the info for fog lights in Washington state:

Washingston state has adopted the Federal Motor Vheicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108 for aftermarket lighting devices.

Fog lamps (SAE J583), aftermarket fog lamps shall be white to amber only


Now this says 'aftermarket fog lamps', I would imagine that anything not aftermarket would have to be OEM color.
