This was a custom project, where there was a lot of back-n-forth communication with
the client to get this just right. We originally painted these ALL Wicked Red to see what it looked like (see Corvette headlights). They turned out great, but after looking at them with
the client, we decided to break it up a bit and paint the stock reflector black….and that did it….perfect! Another thing on this one was that he wanted dual accent lights in there
somehow…whether that was going to be just CCFLs, LEDs or combination of the two.
We finally decided on Dual White CCFL lighting accents, one placed behind the shroud to give it the ‘Iron Man’ look and another one mounted just behind the Shrouds outer lip, so that it gives off a nice back lit circle.
The lenses on these things were bad when I received them. Not horrible, but as with
ALL Solstice lights nowadays, you think they are fine because chrome hides a lot, but as soon as you paint the chrome ANY color, the flaws POP….and this one had internal and external blemishes and dings. My painter worked them over for a few hours and cleared them up the best he could. Muuuch better than they were before; so client will be happy with that. All in all, this was a great project….
