Anyone know where to buy factory yellow fog lights?

I've heard they are on the Euro spec JK's but I'm not sure where to get them besides the dude on here selling them. I'm looking for an alternative place to purchase.

Thanks

Nutro-
Just so you know, it's considered a dick (and/or noob) move to start multiple threads for the same question . . .

( https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=244849 <-- your identical thread in Chit Chat ) . . . and now you know,

OK, with that ^^^ out of the way, here's some tech:

If the Lamin-x film drew linked is the made correctly (no clue if it is) it will give you the same light color and brightness as the factory yellow fog lights.

If you have moderate painting skills and only want to spend some time and about ten bucks, you could do something like this:

Seriously, this is legit. I'm not fookin' widcha. I used Duplicolor Metalcast yellow, about 2 light coats and 5 loaded ones.
Painting risers/stands courtesy of Ovaltine.
I fook up about half of what goes in our recycling bin (somewhere, there's a sorter who'd pay ten bucks just to know WTF happened).


The bootleg yellow fog lights are the exact same color as fog lights born yellow.
The yellow filtering only cuts some blues out of the spectrum, and reduces visible light by approximately . . . jack shit.

If I have paint chipping issues, I'll bake the lights apart and coat the insides. For a test run, the outside surfaces will suffice.

This has held up well. No chipping issues, even after one of my lenses got cracked.
Note: it takes multiple coats to get the proper color, but looks factory and performs the same if done correctly.
