53rd: Custom hand painted hoodliner graphic. Finally finished at the beginning of July 2011. Once again, not the best pic of it. I gotta do a photoshoot soon after my next 2 mods are done in the next month

59th: C-headlight LEDs...gotta get better pics of em soon. I've been wanting them for a while now but I still don't know how I feel about them now that they are actually on =/ They were done this past weekend

This mod I'm really on the fence about the more & more think about it...I think it messes up what I have going with the eyelids. I had to cut the f'ing seal to put them on so now I gotta figure out what I'm going to do if I decide to move them to a diff location (which I probably will)


Here are some pics during the day...yes I realize the color is uneven. I gotta take em off & fix the tint on them

They are all pretty much the same L67. Minor differences such as dipstick and oil pan between body types.

Your car is awesome! The only thing I would change is the placement of the leds in the headlights. Maybe if they were on the bottom of the lights instead of the "C" shape? What LEDs did you use for it? I was thinking about doing something similar with my car
