Only Downside: You can see the solenoid and spring at the right angle.

But I figured that wouldn't be so bad. I have a friend that is an engineer and he works a lot with teflon coatings. I am going to see if he can hook me up and coat my solenoids. This would make it sooooooooo smooth I doubt I would have to worry about pre-install prep. But I think that might be a long shot so I will keep you updated.
Exactly what I did to mine, except mine are painted red. I wanted to do the whole demon eye set up then decided against it. I kinda like this better because I don't have to turn any led's on and get out my car to enjoy the look. I just need a direct beam of light and it looks badass.

Plus, no attention from the cops
