I reinstalled the interior blinker lense and side marker.





So next is to install it without the lens to adjust the beam angle.
After that ill spray the interior pieces flat black and install it.

Give me till the end of the year or sooner.

I alligned the beam and 3m epoxied it in place. The aluminum paper is to keep it in place till the epoxy dries.



Shiny black areas are the epoxy. Hopefully no rattling!

At night the instant on light and color really look sharp.
It totally changes the look of the front end lights.


I like it a lot. Hope you guys like it too!

This is awesome! Looks really sharp and seems to get a little more light off to the side. Way to go!
