Default Fog lamps - I've googled

Ok, I give. I have a 1980 242 gt. Where in the bleeping hell do I find yellow fog lamps or are people simply tinting their stock lenses?

You can buy yellow bulbs. Buy yellow 55w H3 type bulbs. Hella is a good brand. Narva is another one.

I was hoping to find the yellow lenses. I saw the yellow ones on IPD, I was just hoping someone knew where I could find some yellow lenses. Thanks for the tip, much appreciated!

IIRC the process of producing yellow glass is rather unsavory for the environment.

Even glass bulbs are not actually colored glass but painted or coated somehow.

Bosch Touring amber lenses are what you need.

Lamin-X headlight protective film. I've used the clear a number of times on expensive lenses that I don't want chipped. Good stuff. It comes in YELLOW too.
