Dorm Room Retros!

Starting my budget retros project and so far its turning out really good! Just waiting on parts to come in now, but everything is painted and waiting! On to the pics...

heres how i got the lights



took them furthur apart and painted housings black


tried seeing if chrome paint would do the reflectors any justice, turns out not


sanded off the chrome and painted them black instead (along with the orange reflectors)





started with assembly



and this is where im at now! still gotta order the projectors with halos; i will be doing that very soon. Going to be putting 6000k HIDs in along with the halos (white halos im thinking). as for turn signal bulbs im still up in the air as to what i want to get. Ill probably get chrome bulbs that flash orange seeing as the switchbacks cost more than I paid for the headlights

Ill keep you posted! feel free to discuss!

yea i missed out on the group buy but there is a guy here at school that has ones exactly the same that he bout off ebay (all for a similar price as mkulrey13) so it looks like ill be getting those. He has them on his show car (which is the most BA stratus i have ever seen btw) and he hasnt had problems ever so it looks legit!

they come with relay harnesses, projectors, HID bulbs & ballasts, and even sealent to seal your headlight back up!
