Retro-fit maiden voyage
 
hello all,
i posted in the exterior section a while back about building a set a custom projectors for a 05 1500. well i finally got the parts and got started of them. her are pictures so far.

After i split the lights apart using the oven to heat up the lights i taped of the turn signal reflector because im planning on going to switchbacks and would like to keep the reflectiveness. i also taped up around the reflector as i planned to use a tint to make it match the black painted bezels.

prepping the shrouds for accent painting

the accents will be black to add some character to them in a black headlight housing. i should have somemore pictures tomorrow when the paint is dry and i can keep going.

i put an led halo in behind the shroud that i will either have come on with the key or driving lights/turn signals am open to suggestion, that is what the second set of wires coming out of the shroud are for

Nice job! But when you post the photos, use the IMG link. This way the photo will populate in the thread like I have been doing for you.
