Re: new light mod

as for the mini's....they are supposed to have a superb cutoff and Ive read nothing but great reviews on them

the halos are the 14volt flashtech ones

as for painting them......it was done for aesthetics

just to get rid of the white circuit board and make them blend into my black painted lights better

All I did was take some 1/8" pinstriping tape to cover the tops of the LED lights then spray paint....easy

but now Im going to try and lightly tint the yellow LED top with VHT nightshade spray

I will report back with the results soon

Im not too worried because Ive read other people have painted the full LED then lightly sanded the top to expose the LEDs underneath the paint afterwards

so, if the tint turns out crappy, I will just lightly sand it off and start over!

Re: new light mod

update

the VHT nightshades tint was an awful idea

the LEDs blended in, but the light output was more than cut in half.......

so I sanded the paint off and started over....

Re: new light mod

update:



Im going back to the paint can

Ive decided to just black out ALL of the insides and rid of the chrome...........

even though I love the circles of the Jeep headlights, the bottom signal section stands out too much for my liking

Im also going to tape off and paint the VLED switchback bulbs black

hopefully more pics if I can get time to do this by the weekend.......

Re: new light mod

Till

I love the look of the chrome signal section with the factory reflectors

but

once I added the projectors, it looks too semi-circular for me

dont think Im going to test fit it yet.........this is my DD and I dont have time for a front end tear down

I will do the tear down and projector aiming all in 1 final swoop!

Re: new light mod
