Custom Headlights: Thoughts?

Hey everyone. Just got some work done on my headlights and curious to know what everyone thinks about them.

Installed Umnizta V4.
Painted Signal fins and Shrouds Gloss Black.
Painted Brow Titanium Silver.
Left the bottom housing stock.

No cutting has been done to these lights.

Sorry about the pics being huge.
And yes the front cover is still off.





Lights with my LCI M-Sport OEM Front Conversion!

Did you smoke the turning lens? I did pretty much the same thing to mine except I used Umnitza RGB halos and clear projector lens's. They'll look great on the car.

Looks pretty cool. Would be neat if there was a way to put a few stacked straight tubes(like angel eyes tubes) parallel top the ground where turn signals would be.

wow, those are bright, especially since the pics are with the lights facing the sun and not in the shadows. They came out nice, looks very professional in the close ups, cant tell they were opened.

Yea, they're brighter than I expected them to be. Umnitza v4, quality shit. Opened them the right way, no cutting whatsoever. I wish I could take night shots, but they're so bright that I would need to take the pic at a huge angle.

Not sure what you mean. The signal fins are part of the headlight unit. I just painted them Jet Black.

They look great! So much better than the full black out other people are doing. Needs some contrast so show off the design. Excellent work!
