Ok i decided to play around with mspaint with a picture of my car to test out a custom look for the headlights, fogs including hood pins which i sucked at making and the bumper lip. Let me know what you guys think.

I dont paint well, but im gunna work on different headlight styles just to see what you guys think.

Well, nothing really, Hood pins are just a want, not a need. But styling is a must if your going to build a show car and thats what im pulling for. A dd/show car.

Yes but your car is like sex on wheels it doesnt need hood pins. I figured since i have an ugly burgandy car then why not hood pins or dampeners. Oh btw where can i get hood dampeners if i dont want to order theM?

you can pick up dampeners from just about any auto parts store, but then it would be up to you to make brackets to mount them. I just ordered mine off Ebay for like $50.



There is guy running around here that has double projectors with halo, next time I see him, I'll ask about pictures.

That projector looks like a legit job
Most of them look good from the front, then you open the hood and look at the back. It's hard to make them look good in the back. Some of the projectors that people use are so long that they even have to bend up the rad support a little. I'll just stick with my clear headlight covers and 12k HIDs.

12000k only refers to the color. In fact, the higher color temp you go, the less light output you get. So, in theory, my lights should hurt your eyes less then every OEM HID headlight out there. In reality, they are bright as fuck because my housings were not designed for HIDs and they have clear covers. :p
