C'mon Koven...don't be lazy, it's spring now. You should do it, it'd look sick on your car.

did mine in about an hr. I gotta alot of the paint left and I'm in SJ...

if you wanna pick it up ... PM me... I can't imagine I'd need it for anything else.










thanks for the idea guys! I love inexpensive mods that make a difference....

I did the Jun-Q modif (yellow).
I don't find anything different with it in terms of light output.

These look good. I'm curious how it would look to do this to your corner lenses, and simply use clear/chrome bulbs!

i was bored this morning and did mine in metallic black

i used plastikote metallic black


depo shroud painted (notice the newspaper korn concert tomorrow, cant wait)


covered up the car


close ups




finished product


the paint dried up in 25mins under the sun. overall it took about 45mins to do both head lamps.
sorry if bad quality in pics, they were taken with nexus one.

i'll take pics at night to see visibility at night with the high beams and post them afterwards.

Cool thanks Stu. They look awesome on your car. I think they would be alot more subtle on my black car, so will probably just leave them for now.

You wouldnt happen to know if these eyebrows are also custom made, as i cant find that angle and length of eyebrow anywhere. I actually have a set of full length eye brows that go over the turn signal as well, that i could do a custom job on to try and get that look:

Yup, that's my car. It was a custom set I made out of ABS plastic. Unfortunately, you won't be able to find a set like that for sale.
