    Re: Black headlight mod.

    I think I might just sign up for this too, once the weather warms up enough to remove my headlights. I do want to see how the halos turn out. Which halo will you be using? I looked at their site, and am curious to see how the plasma ring looks.

    So it's the ring around the light? Does it stay on for daytime driving?

    Yes. You can wire them directly to your drl's or you can run a switch to your drivers panel, or hook them to your fogs. Pretty much anything you want to do.
    As far as the look, they are sold in a wide variety of colors, and for our 09-13 models, the halo goes around the single eye light in the housing. Looks good.

    I'm intrigued. Can you do a core type of deposit as this is my daily driver?

    I would love to, but as you know replacement lights are very expensive. If business goes crazy then maybe, but right now it's not worth it to put out 700+

    Unless that is you have a nice inside stock tip.......

    Wealth management means we manage it. We don't make it. But I was a stockbroker for a dozen years.

    Re: Black headlight mod.

    Alright everyone, here is a little update on my next project that we are working on. WGT3 wanted his housings painted Thunder Gray to match his paint job, he wanted his amber markers painted over to match the TG as well, tinted DRL's, and of course white Halo's! The housing ring of the halo's is also being matched to the TG. The pics include our post sanding process with 3 coats of primer to ensure good adhesion, each part of the light painted individually, and 3 coats of the TG paint on housings and markers. We still are going to be putting 2 more coats on everything!

    Moving forward gentleman (and ladies) we have the capability to color match to any color your would like, we would just need the color code from inside of your door sill. We also are capable of getting many different colors of Halo's. (red, green, blue, ambers, white, and color changing) Also we are able to do two ring halo kits that have one ring lighting as one color, and the other ring a seperate color. These Halo's do not interfere with the lights in any way and keep full functionality. The Halo's can be installed to your high beams, fog lights, DRL's, or we can provide a remote control to mount for an additional charge.

    If anyone has any concerns or questions for their individual application, feel free to PM, call, or email me. My personal email is Michaelgbemis@gmail.com, my cell is 267 885 4114, and of course you all know me here as The Dark Knight..........(play cheesy super hero music)

    We have a tentative mid March reservation for our friend GroceryGettinV. He's got some sick plans......stay tuned!

    I'm still confused how this works. I pull my headlights, send them to you and you work on them for how long?

    Round trip is 4-5 days for regular service, and about a week if you're getting halos.
