Color Changing Demon Eye Retros and Foglights

So I am trying to recover the Retros I got from cobalt mag.

The problems on the old Retros were:
Glue everywhere, on and inside the lenses, on the housing, just everywhere.
All the tabs were broken off so the lens wouldn't sit correctly
The paint was runny, and there were big gobs of it in spots
No hardware for the back of the projectors to mount the bulbs.

So I got new black housing headlight and started the process of rebuilding.

Currently the old Retros are pulled apart, the new headlights are pulled apart and modded to accept the projectors. The reflector is painted and everything is pretty much ready for reassembly. Im just waiting to get the hardware in to mount the bulbs into the projectors.
My big project was really the demon eye mod. I had blue demon eyes in my first set of Retros and fogs before the fire and I loved them, so I wanted to do the same thing again. But this time I took it a step further. I got color changing led strips and mounted them in my heads and fogs. Here is what I got so far:

And the foglight

Sorry for the crappy video, I shot it with my touch...
I can make them stay on any color, strobe and fade from color to color. I can control the strobe and fade speed, and all 4 will be wired to a single control box so they are in sync with eachother.

Well not these lights obviously. The ones that started the fire melted into a puddle in my parents driveway. But yes it was a set oof retros that started my previous fire. I figure the chances of that happening again are slim, and these are so damn sexy its worth trying again lol.
