so you chose black because it's easier to keep clean? i don't blame you. you should dip a white ring around each wheel.

Both sets of wheels came black from the previous owner, and I dipped the 5-spokes white, but I think I'll leave the winter set alone.

Lol I was wondering how you were getting confused, but the profile pic is old (from the day I bought it I think). I haven't gotten around to updating it.

Mach's are done, finally! Installed this past Saturday along with the Euro grille. I'm not 100% satisfied with how they turned out, I must not have sealed the passenger light correctly because I'm getting a lot of condensation buildup. And the lenses aren't as clear as I'd like them to be, even after two rounds of restoration kits. I think the inside of the lenses are dirty, actually. I still have to aim them properly as well. Anyway, enough complaining, pictures below.











Compare with stealth's sweet ebay lights

They're expensive, but in a way, they are cheap. In the construction. You should see how flimsy that insert is, and the chrome is painted on super thin. But the projectors and signal lenses are well done IMO.

Thanks for the compliments, bro! Still wish my lenses were as clear as everyone else's.
