    You have to be careful, but people have done it to replace the glass section and keep the clear plastic surrounds on the early Mk1's. I think a heat gun is handy

    I think rechroming is a time waste. Buy the newer ones with the black surrounds and take that black bit off then put the old clear ones on.

    Use the oven to warm the fog lamp up and follow as paddy said.

    you can buy spray paint to recolour the chrome.

    Brought a second set to try. Found a company that can re chrome them. Just need to find a way of putting them back together

    Can you tell me what car did it come off?
    I presume not a Williams, and the clio mk1 fogs don't look the same as the Williams mk1's

    Williams, Valver & RSI use the same fog light in both forms

    I think I've got a glass piece on it's own in 1 of my boxes of bits, lemme dig it out & you can have it
