    Aggressive headlights look



    , I have some V series lights on the way to replace my current lights, but I was always curious what my car would look like with vinyl eyelids. I was bored this weekend, so I just took this $10 roll of ebay vinyl and cut the pattern out. It took about 30 mins for both lights and was pretty fun. I actually like the look, so I thought I'd share.

    I would have been fine if came with them like that.

    Super easy mod..

    Aggressive






    camera : canon 60d 55mm lens 1.4f

    Cool look. Would be nice if it were inside the lens but that's a whole other weekend job. I also like the way your rear wheels fit the finder wells. Is your car lowered, how much? What wheels and tires? Wheel offset?
    Nice work.

    Nice Ride!!!

    You might try shooting in A-DEP mode, so that the whole car is in focus.. at least in a few shots it looks to be somewhat fuzzy.
    might help.

    Nice job.
    Have you thought about doing the rear lights too? I find that the eyelids accentuate how the lamp design sticks out from the car, something that isn't as apparent when the tops are clear.

    Thats exactly why I did it, and why it works b/c it accentuates the shape. I haven't thought about doing the rear lights, I just wanted more personality in the headlights.

    I'd either black out the entire taillight or just leave them alone. My last car was silver and I had the taillights blackedout and loved it. I didn't do it to my cadi b/c its black and I like contrast.
