In the area and have Lux 2.0?

Is there anybody in the area that have the Lux 2.0 Rings?

I have seen pics, but either wanna see more angles or in person. If pics, Daytime, like morning, then afternoon like after 5 and then nice.

I would like to see how bright it is, and if I have my eye lids over them, it would help to allow them to be seen more in day time. Even with my great camera, I am sure that with others it will have the same problem here the pic of the Lux 2.0 rings may appear to be thicker than they really are.

what i did was just lower the shutter speed during the night, u cant see the rest of the car, but you can see the shape of the lux; avoids the thicker halos.

Here are some pics i took.





As you can see, my car is pretty dark: i didnt use a long shutter speed. its pretty acurate as to how it looks on a cloudy day at 3pm.

Here was one at mds82's place.



As for in person, lets get a meet going! March 9/10/11

that pic by mds place was just what i needed. So your car is in the middle right? I believe you did the corner light mod.

You were saying that you lowered the shutter speed on your camera right? to take the pic? My camera is great, but too many damn features and modes, lol.

Anyway, we should certainly get another one going. That weekend. The weather, this week seems to be holding up... specifically yesterday and today. March should be warmer on average. As long as there is no ice, we should be good.

Ya i forgot to mention, my car is the one in the middle. You can see the LUX 2 is brighter than stock (on the left). I did change my corner lights to a white bulb.

To capture the rings i lowered shutter speed, it should be a pretty simple setting on any camera, mine was a point&shoot.

how come mds' 6000k fogs are brighter than uhaulball's 8000k fogs? Is it that Mds' are angled to the floor more?? ***I am referring to the pic with angel eyes on only.

In that pics UHaulball's 7500k fogs are just halogen , my 6000k fogs are HID's
halogon = 1200 lumen ( i think). HID = 3000lumen
