Yellow Fog Lights

The fog lights on my 79 450SLC were the factory installed Bosch white lights. I live in fog country in the Ozarks in Missouri. I wanted Yellow lights. I checked out various lights at auto stores and noticed that the amber is created in many of them by the reflector not the lens. I took out the reflectors, cleaned them very good and got a very high reflectivity gold paint (spray on) and made my own amber fog lights, they work great. If I had the right equipment I would have chemically plated them with gold, it works also. Incidently as pointed out by one of your resonders, yellow filters work for cameras and the same principle works for yellow fog lights!!!
Good Luck
