Good job. It'* nice to see it complete. Not a huge fan personally cause it looks like they put out sloightly too much light and it reflects off the back of the housing too much. Might want to try blacking out the back half to reduce the reflection of the back of the housing .

That'* a good idea Geoff, that'* what I meant by the reflector killing the halo effect.

yes i already took the lights apart once after they were finished cause of a damn LED burning out..... I can always try it on the Pass side, before its final..

Keep the comments coming...

looks great pat, but, what i would do, is look for some aluminum tape or something <that can take the heat of the light> and put it on the back side of the rings, to cut the glare. i really think the glare off of the reflectors kinda takes some out of it. but, very nice

Very nice... I looked at doing this about a year ago, I even have the halos sitting around and a headlight all taken apart. I never got around to really working on it tho. But in the little time I did I had problems with the glue and holding them in place and the size of the eyes I had.

Could you get a pic with the flash off and you car in the dark (i.e. with no other light) A wright-up on where you got the eyes and the size of them, the glue you used, and etc. would be nice too.

They look great.
The glare from the halos does make it look like the lights are on though.

Pat... looks good.
I agree, so something to cut the back lighting. Afterall they are only to look good on the front.
Nice table in the first couple..lol You took the Doritos!!!!!

How do you lose a thumbscrew doing this project?
(mumbles to self...about how he loses a 10mm socket between toolbox and car...smacks self in head)
