DIY Halos

Thought this was pretty cool...

PITA none the less, but still pretty cool and a cheap alternative

I might give this a whirl

Re: DIY Halos

this looks like what 00wj found when he opened his fogs. they arent very bright......

if you are going to open the lights, either get some real halos or get ome of the flexible LEDs and make it right bro.

remember the hard part is opening the lights.

Re: DIY Halos

I am sure there is a way to use super bright bulbs to make it turn out better. Hell curtain rod replacements arent that much, You might be able to mess around a lot and put in a LED even 1-2 inches on the back of it and wire them together that way.

But yeah, props for sure, I bet that only cost like 30 bucks for all 4 outta pocket if he already had the tools.

Re: DIY Halos

They still look cool as hell LOL, but in the end, I can see an issue coming about.
