In your guys suggestion what all should I blackout on the chrome section?
It takes h3's and I think I will hid them sometime 8k or something since they are off at this point it's a good time to. Maybe chnge out the halo for a blue one, this is going to be fun, can't wait till it warms up here in MO for paint!

Stocks are for backup, I would not ever want to do that to stockers, but I want to bo the new projectors, but I guess what I am wanting to know from everybody is, should I bo the entire chrome peice or just leave the relector section chrome, or what? I know it's personal pref but, second or third opinions help;)

I'm uploading pics now, hold up :)
Still trying to clear up the headlights with 3m compound and 2000 grit sandpaper, but proves to be very hard by hand to see much result.
What'you guys think??

Looks good. I had those lights before in Black Housing. I didn't like the light output (kinda dull) So I Blacked out the stock. Anyways, GL on the blue halo idea.

Thanks, I think they'll look good if I hid them with itek 8ks, or those 150watt high output h3's
Anyone ever had experince with the high wattage h3's, how is there longevity since they are higher wattage?

thanks for the positive comments man!! i wish I could see the freakin pictures! its driving me insane lol.
But as far as those 150 watt bulbs they should last just as long as any others. Whatever you do dont get the cheap blue ones they last about 2 weeks for me. If you want blue do what you're thinkin and get the 8K's I absolutley love them. I think this wil turn out great when completed man! i might just have to drive up there and check them out since pictures wont show anymore lol

can you right click on the pics and save them to your desktop??
I think I might as well start off smart and go the hid route you got, since I know they are good.

Okay I just got home and decided to see what type of bulbs where behind the halo, 3 per side, or 3 per halo. They are about the size as my fingernail long and about 1/3 the wide of my nail, any clue as to what type of bulbs these my be??
They look just like Christmas lights that you would put on your roof, no shit!
Help me out if you guys know, or even better links to purchase blue or green ones.
