That is until Nate figures out how many hours he put in and starts adding up the $$$. If you want to pay some one to put this much detail into it you'd be looking at well over $1000 I bet.


BTW. Incredible job!!

Looks amazing man!

Where did you buy the hid kit from? I saw the links for the lights and led strips but missed the link for the hids if you mentioned it.

They are just the 4300K D1S bulbs and I am using the OEM 35W ballasts. Got it all off eBay for cheap!

Wow! I guess I have some decisions to make. I guess since you've already done a set I will just take a week of leave and come down to visit and we can work on them together! Can't wait! You're the best!

That's actually not a bad Idea... maybe christmas! That is unless I get bored and want to do it myself. Until then I'll keep an eye out for a good deal for the headlight housings, so far the best I've found is $290 for both.

$ 277.96 does saving $12.04 make you want to pull the trigger?

Great Job, looks amazing!!!

I did this on a car I owned a few years back and when I removed the masking tape the adhesive took some of the mirror finish off the housing. Did you have any problems with this?

What brand of tape is that?

I'm doing my headlights white, and wanted to know if I could leave the silicone covering over the LEDs?

I don't see why not. Just know that I was never able to get the amber blinker part of it to work. The way the LEDs are wired to blink doesn't work with the way our Jeeps circuits are wired. But the white lights up nicely!
