i'm not really into halos... i think it's played out... seems like every car has them... i think i'll eventually add some LED's... but not worried about it now...

ya i know... i was getting so frustrated so i almost got out of it... but i figured since i waited that long, i'd just wait a few more days... but it tells you how much time and effort he puts into every set... so hopefully it'll last me a long time

woah, WHAT A BITER.....hahahaha JUST KIDDIN.....reminds me of something familar....ohhhh my headlights....hehe, trust me cf isn't cheap, and cf is not an easy 1 day job. the time and percision and patience with working with cf takes a person with skills.

yea my headlights are going back to larry, i decided to get a bunch of led's in them. same with my tail lights.....

didn't feel like having the rest of the housing in cf? i loved the way my turned out, so i'm pretty sure yours is just the same.....you won't be disappointed. the 2 months wait is worth every bit of it. enjoy.

i feel the way same, i'm sure it'll look great.... but i'm not rich like u xplicit couldn't afford anymore cr work so that's it... but i think it'll look good either way... just the right amount of cf

hey, what exactly are you doing with LED's... i might add a row of white ones at the bottom as DRL's maybe or maybe that ccfl stuff mentioned above... sounds/looks good...

dang that looks nice too.....wowzers! IMO, i think the ccfl things is a little too much, takes away from the nice craftsman ship of the cf, and whole retro.

as for led's at first i wanted to put orange led's behind the orange reflector, but larry advised me that there isn't any room back there, so i said eh forget it then. then he advised that i put like a BUNCH of led's in the orange turn signal area, to replace the orange bulb.....i'm still contemplating it, also wanted to add DRL's in the high beam area....

so yea, as for tail lights, the whole entire tail light would be in red led's, and the reverse will just be the stock bulb, i have a black car, so i'm contemplating weather to paint the reverse "pinkish" area red, or tint it, either way it'll match....all red tails, or the black middle which matches the car......

Hey Larry....do you now have like a mold for the 7th gen headlights? Cuz it would be cool to maybe blackout or chrome a piece made from that and sell that as a shroud so the headlight looks stock using projectors. I know i can retro those aftermarket housings, but i dont really like the bulb types and turn signal and halo that burns out.
