    So I have my very first pair of headlights I opened and after learning a lot over the last 4 sets I've finally decided to reopen them. Theonky thing I did to them the first time was add a flush mount led pod in place of the high beam. This time I plan to add a D2S Morimoto 3" projector with black passive demon eyes and rgbw demon eyes with a halo on the shroud. Also adding an etch to the lens. I've only had them open for three days and already got a lot done. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Had a couple of ideas for the etched lens but decided to go with the Mopar honeycombs. The black passive demon eyes makes it pop with out a light on[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Liking it a lot. I want to do another set with the Mini D2S 5.0 and Hi-Lens, same as what I did for my first build, but get a set of Mopar black quads. Looking at the extended dust caps from a Durango (HID) headlight.

    this is pretty sweet i am wanting to do something different with my headlights and am having trouble making a choice. I like the way this looks alot. How difficult was it to put the projectors in? and how does the demon eye work do you have a separate switch for it? can you change the color? also minus the led pods what do you have in money wise if you dont mind me asking. If i peiced it together correctly im looking at about 200 smacks minus ofcourse time and effort

    Sky is the limit with these lights. I was able to find the projectors on FB market for $80 with halos. I think I spent around $100 for RGBW demon eyes and controller. I etched the lenses myself. I use the power from the parking lights. So when I turn just parking lights on, the demon eyes come on. If ur handy with a Dremel then it's not to bad. The size of the projector is what will decide the amount of work. 2.5" projector with a slim shroud will be less trimming the a 3" projector with a big shroud. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Its got an awesome look to it man almost kind of iron man feel to it. I priced it out with the halos and stuff came put over 300 feels steep and then i still have to put it together. I think ill have to pass but great work non the less.
