Default testing HID look



I was playing with photoshop to see how the bonne would look with projectors. I think it looks pretty sweet!

To bet a better idea you need to lean away from the screen a little bit.

OPINIONS please!?!?!


PS. I know the image is mirrored. The way the sun hit the car it messed with the look.

I hope this is ok here, its not really a picture of my car but then again it is. Mods feel free to move if it should be in "My ride".

its only a photoshop, hopefully someday I will be able to actually do that.

If I spend all the time to do projectors I would definately polish it off with some angel eyes.

to get projectors into our lenses I would have to seperate the lense from the reflective housing, cut out the housing to fit the project in there and then proceed to re-seal it back up and fit it into the car.

Now that is put pretty simply, it is a little bit more complicated than that.

easier said than done...like most things.
