Re: How To: reverse hid WJ

I only have a comparison shot after I swapped in the left side cause my camera decided that it had taken enough pics for one lifetime and died.

Re: How To: reverse hid WJ

oh yeah, I've gotten a couple of looks from people who happened to be behind me when I was backing up.

My Dad really dislikes that I put any money into the Jeep at all, but after I showed him this he was like, "Wow.....could you do that to my car too?"

Probly not, he doesn't want to fork over the money and I'm not sure where I would mount the ballasts in his car.

Re: How To: reverse hid WJ

Well, I just did this, Gen III projectors, and the 04 front end conversion, (first one on JG???), so I'm gonna wait til summer for the next mods, but I'll be painting the mirrors and investing in a paint correction.

Re: How To: reverse hid WJ

I have pics on my phone so I will try to get those up soon, but as for the mirrors, it's not gonna cost me anything but time. I got all the paint primer and adhesion promotor for free. The paint correction tho is a must. My paint is so F'd up, here's a pic of the back in daylight to show how faded it is.

That hazy look on the tailgate isn't a reflection, it's the faded paint.
