Oh boy, your in big trouble now . Your mods look great BTW, love the calipers, kind of look like mine. Cover looks good as well and I did notice that some touch up is needed. Add some pics of the cover and CAI once you have them installed.

What did you do to your headlights? Are those just new bulbs? If so, what kind? Thanks!

Thanks man, you were actually the one that inspired me to do the Calipers and Engine cover. I'll post some pics once everything is finished. Next mod I want to to do is some LED's in the fake vents in the engine hood. Another member on here inspired me to do that as well! Lot's of good ideas on this forum!!

So I am assuming that is a little more involved than just swapping out the bulbs, correct?

I am trying to get that same look, but I would like it to be as easy as just replacing the bulbs.

Look at this post i wrote last night. It explains the process.

OK. For the fogs, take the stock light out. Plug the stock harness into the raptor ballast. From the ballast, plug into the HID light and insert into the fog light housing.

For the lows, remove the grill/headlights (plenty of tutorials on the forums). Remove the rear plug on the headlight (this will require a hole drilled in it to route the wires through later). Find a good location to mount your ballast (I put mine on the frame rails with 3m body molding tape).Then remove the stock bulb and insert the HID bulb. Then, run the wire that connects to the stock low beam plug (located in the headlight housing) out to the bulb out warning eliminator (through the hole drilled in the headlight butt plug). From there connect the wire from the warning eliminator into the plug on the ballast. Then, run the wire from the output of the ballast into the HID bulb through the hole drilled in the headlight butt plug and replace the cover. Finally, plug the wires back into the stock wire harness (the two plugs outside the headlight with 3 wires on them) and set the headlight in its home.

You want to be sure to check for voltages on the fog lights to make sure you install correctly (ie. not reversed polarity) This is not too bad if it happens, (flickering/intermittent firing/ failure to light) just swap them around and you are ok. For the warning eliminators, you want to be sure you hook them up correctly or the internal capacitors will explode so think about everything before you energize the circuit. Once complete for both sides, test the headlights for any problems.

Hope this helps and is understandable. Any questions, just ask and I will try to help/reply as soon as I can.

Wow, that is so nice to hear. That's what's great about this forum, everyone is willing to share ideas. I love your hood BTW, I regret not ordering it with mine. It's pricey to change out now and I have the old hood to try and unload.
