I bought 2 sets of solaris (signal in white), sold 1 set and kept other set. It was used only for a minute before deciding that it's too dark.. Don't think you want it since I sanded the chrome off one of them to try to make the bulb brighter so it's actually now a blue bulb instead of chrome.

I have the X5 chrome blinkers, i think they match perfectly and get rid of the amber look, at least while they are off

My suggestion

They look great. Period.
Don't even think about doing them for others- the cost would be prohibitive, you'd get real fed-up real fast; just opening a can of worms.
Certain things work in a one-on-one environment, others don't.
They look great, though.
You might consider offering/selling instructions of some sort.

This mod looks really good. I agree with everyone. So are you doing custom jobs for those who are interested?

I just got a set of Silver CF from Marc.
He came to our Fall Meet in VA and I was able to get a set from him.
Thanks for coming to my house Marc and helping install these babies.
Whoohoo!

Thanks Marc.
