~~~Finally - 2 years in the making - CARBON FIBER Headlights~~~

As some of you know, a few years back i opened my headlights and covered the amber with Black Carbon Fiber. This was a manual process that was a HUGE PITA, but it looks great. I have done this for a few other forum members as well, but ran into some issues with doing the CF work myself.

Finally, almost 2 years later, I have a final sample of the Finished Carbon Fiber overlay. These are made from a DRY Carbon Fiber molding process and finished with a high gloss covering. These things look beautiful.

I have 10 sets of Black CF and 10 sets of Silver CF on order. I'm looking to install these for people who are interested. This is a Long process and takes Lots of my time.

Please PM Me if you are interested, but just so you know, there will be a rather long wait time for these, because i can only do 1 set of lights at a time.

They actually look 100% better i think. They are perfect lines, and fit exactly over the amber. They also have a more uniform weave pattern, where as a few of the ones i did before had pulls in the CF.

So no offense, but i'm going to have to disagree with you on this one Long

Thats fine. I have a set of headlights that i work on. I install the CF of your choice and then ship these to you. From there you install them and send me back your stock ones.

All you need is 1 day to install them
