I can only assume the bulb fell out of the socket and melted she lens and the housing and harness and every fucking thing around it lol..

Looks the the bulb stayed in place and it just melted due to excessive heat. Let me guess, you used a 55w kit?

Holy bejesus batman. That's nasty looking. I've got 55w I think in my fogs and they run all the time. What kit did you use? Ddm?

Damn, well I guess it could have been worse. Pick up a new electrical connector, and fog housing,and fix your harness and you should be good to go

What's with all the electrical tape and crappy wiring? That's probably why it burned up...

Lol.. the wiring wasn't crap, , that's just what's left over from it melting. . The wire itself is from the wires going from the ballast to the factory plug. The tape was on there too cover any exposed connectors and help hold everything together.
