So I've been working on these headlights for about 2 months now...and by working on....I mean waiting on. First it was waiting on brand new halo's to arrive....they hadn't made a specific size yet, so we were pushed back a month....then it was paint...since this paint scheme was so intricate, it took a while to plan and lay out the design...then finally find time to pain it. So now that it's all painted, I can finish this up here soon......but the paint job was just too crazy to NOT share....so here you go!
Had a local Evo X owner that needed his lights blacked out.
Instead of everything, we left the orange reflectors un-painted.
Got them separated and ready for paint in 30 minutes...then they sat with the flat black over night....reassembled in the morning and back on the car by afternoon.
Made a badass car look even more badass...edness.
Got them all sealed up, cleaned up, packaged up and ready to go.
Snapped these pics to finish off the build pics.
Next up? On-Car pics whenever the client gets them to me.
Got the CCFLs (two per shroud) attached to the shrouds
Projector has been hand-painted (couldn't masked off LED holes)
Mounted the Shrouds, soldered all the wires, tested all the lights.
Just waiting for the shrouds to cure and we'll be good to seal these badboys up.
This shroud/projector combo was the hardest I've had yet. Didn't help that I tried to stick 3 sets of CCFL's behind them. Unfortuneately, they don't make a size that would fit that last ring and even if they did, it wouldn't have fit on the FX-R projector. I had to doctor these shrouds up in order to get them to fit just by themselves.....then add a strip of LEDs for the Demon Eyes, and 2 CCFLs to the mix and it took some crafty shifting to get these on.
All-in-all, I'm pretty happy with the outcome.....it's hard to tell how these will pop because of all the black, but they will for sure finish off that Brazen solsti once they get put on...it's such a good color when you match it with black, that these headlights will look siiiick!
New Solstice Headlights.
This time they are going on a Brazen colored Solstice.
Brazen is Pontiac's (GM) Burnt Orange Color...it's called Inferno Orange.
Pretty cool color...has a mix of Red and Orange.
These ones will be special:
FX-R Projectors with clear lenses
G37 Shrouds Painted Brazen Orange
Dual Halo's behind G37 Shroud
Orange/Amber Demon Eye LED Accent Lighting
Everything else painted Gloss Black.
Will be ready for paint tomorrow and the next day
It's all in a days work...as they say.
Got about 6 hours into these......if I were to do them again, i'd do them differently, but for what they are, I didn't want to spend any more time.
They actually sound pretty damned close to what they sounded like in the tuned boxes....which was saweeet!!!
Next year I'll have a giant pumpkin to put a subwoofer in and then we'll be golden.
For now....that'll do pig....that'll do!
