LED strip under headlights?? need opinions

Time for another "Hell yeah! /or/ Hell no!!" session.

Alright, saw these online a while back when searching for after market parts, and didn't really think much about them. Came across them today again, and thought maybe i could do something with them. Need everyone's thoughts on if it'd look good or not (as usual lol)

Thinking taking an LED strip (such as: http://www.carid.com/2011-ford-focus...kit-92558.html ) and making the flow of the strip follow what i've circled in the picture below.

(blackfocus2k4) If JBurd0820 doesn't want the LED strips, I would sure be interested.

I'll let you know by tomorrow (monday 6/13) night if i want to, highly considering it though.

Why didn't anyone follow that curve over the grill? Is the strip not that flexible, or would it just not look good?
