Time to resurrect this project, since I last posted I have decided against the ocular shrouds and I am considering ordering these


They are called gti-r shrouds and they should be compact enough to achieve the look I want.

Now I need some opinions on these,
I can't decide what color I will make them, the choices are:
Leave them chrome
Paint them flat black
or body match them white

Please give me some feedback I really could use the help

Leave them chrome. Body matched headlights look tacky in my opinion. Chrome would match more what a factory headlight looks like with refractors.
