:nuts: It's always nice to put a face with a Nickname even an ugly mug like mine. Then when you meet them you know your talking to the right person or you know when to walk the other way :bigsmile: .

No pictures of me with the car. I have to take the pictures after all. Maybe I'll get some this summer when its a bit warmer out :bigsmile:

Did some work to the headlights yesterday. Blacked them out, nightshaded the orange cover, and did a purple LED "halo" that is always on with the ambient light sensor (so only on when dark) and pulses opposite the turn bulb.

I've also remove the door guard trim, and repainted the rear 1/4 panel after some jackass backed into me and took off. Thats it for now, but this site is inspiring :) I'm not one for performance mods, just making it look unique.

What kind of led did you use I did the same but light blue and each side has 32 led's so there Is tons of little dots coming off the reflecter.

Thanks a lot :) Unique is what I'm always shooting for.

3mm regular LED's. 16 on each side, I took out the LED signal bulbs because of all the dots actually. The stock bulbs really emphasize the halo effect.

How hard was it to do those purple led's? cause i love the look of those and it's cheaper than buying new headlights with halo's.
To open, paint, drill, mount LEDs, solder, wire, reseal, and wire the relay took about 5 hours per side! The LED portion took about 3 hours per light on its own.



And thanks for the love guys! I'll have to snap off a few more on my next sunny day off :love:

I'm impressed that you do your own work! Can't even get my wife to check her oil. Is that a Victoria Secret 2012 Runway edition?
