Restoring W123 Fog Lights?

Has anyone taken a very faded W123 amber fog light and successfully restored it so that the amber color is bright and vibrant? Neither example attached are mine BTW.

There was a thread several years ago about restoring the yellow Fog
Lights. Couldn`t find it searching but came across this one.

I just run the clear Fog Lights in the 240 and 300D. I changed the 55W
bulb in the 300 to a 100W, and wired them to come on with the high
beam. really lights up the dark roads out here.

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works

If you change to clear, you can also buy yellow bulbs, if you have to have the yellow. That is what I did after I installed Ecodes on my w123 and w124.
