If people want me to do this or something similar to their headlights talk to me, maybe we can work something out.

No... that stuff is Way too rigid to be able to make the multiple angles over the amber. I bought some stuff like that off e-bay but it didnt work. You need to use a fabric - which makes it MUCH HARDER.

I bought something like this and used it. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/100-2...spagenameZWDVW

it was a pain though because once you cut it it frays instantly, so you need to cure it somehow first. I just used clear coat because it was easier.

LUX 2.1...????


I'm waiting for some parts for LUX 2.5, well i'm gonna call it LUX 2.5 No idea when yet though, i'm looking into the LED's first. I cant wait myself.

I expect them to be around 440 Lumen, while LUX 2.0 are around 280 Lumen. Thats a huge difference!!!

A+. Good work. Maybe, you could help out those that want to convert their halogens to xenons. Change the amber and while they're open pop in some aftermarket xenons.
