Depos... My way (more pics)

Post by sxxxt » Wed Mar 17, 2010 12:10 am

I sold my headlights and bought new ones.. But some ppl know someone broke the old ones. So now I have to pay for the old ones blah blah. Ok here r the new ones.
Decided to open them and paint the chrome piece and add better LEDs.
First I stripped it Dow

looks good, i was thinking that if you cut out the shelf below the turn signal it would look so much better. but as is looks better than anyother set i have seen to date :thumbup:

Doesn't affect it at all, mine are painted black and you can see the bulb just fine.

I was thinking the same thing. Why not bring the car to your house? That's where I keep mine...

I don't like either way personally but I think that's because I dislike those headlights they look cheap.

its different man.. I hope that if you try to keep it that way you will still have the full adjustments like the OEM.


I also agree that you need to swap the old ones back on until you can move the car out of there...

I also don't like how those depos look because of that reason.


But I'd say that the new set you are working on looks better than the ones on the car.
