    Black headlight mod.

    Hey guys,
    Coming from a Toyota tundra where all we did was this mod, myself and a friend are gonna start doing the V lights too. I am going to do mine first and post pictures. For those of you who are scared to do this yourself and would rather pay to have it done feel free to PM and we can figure it out. With labor, time, core exchange for those of you who need it, and materials I am looking in the $300 a set range.
    Also if you would like to add oracle halos to your lights we can arrange that too.
    I am away from home right now for work but am going to start taking orders in February once I complete mine.....stay tuned and PM me for preliminary interest.


    Thanks
    Mike

    How's the visibility at night? Any pics of the Tundra so we can get an idea of the final look?

    We can also put halos in the lights

    Yeah we have done between 50-100 pairs of tundria lights so we have the whole procedure down to a science. The V's lights are a little larger,but the end result is the same. Hopefully we can help a few of you guys out that want this done.

    What are the headlights worth.....outright. From the dealer and then modified?

    Well new headlights are around 800-1000 a piece i believe. So dependent upon what people want to do, I was going to pick up a core pair or two depending on number of customers, send those out to people while they send me thiers to mod, and when complete swap back. Or if your car is garaged or not driven daily, just send your set to be done. Turn around time is about 5 days from your door to my door, work completed, and then mailed back.
    So back to your question, the only real cost if your sending me your lights is the cost of the painting, halos (if you add them) and shipping.
