    my weekend project finally completed

    Ive been wanting to paint my headlight housings ever since i got the car, and have had the halos for about the same time. i finally had a weekend to myself, so thats what i had on my plate. last saturday i took on the task of painting my housings, installing my halos, and rewiring my fog lights to run with out having the headlights on. total down time, approx 6 hours, start to finish. this is what came of it, enjoy!

    Looking good.

    Doesn't that plate relocation hinder the light coming from the right fog light?

    Not going to lie, coming from a BMW world, I normally hate "halos" or angel eyes on anything, but that looks really clean and good. Kudos to you sir

    Agreed! I was expecting this to be really bad but, it's kinda good! Nice work.

    Looks great! I like how the halos actually look like white light. They don't look cheap like most aftermarket halo kits.
