thats the plan, im still waiting on the projectors themselves. I went with a porsche ECE spec bi-xenon projector set. a little extra $$$, but worth it i think.

i'd really like this done to my car. there's a lot of chrome showing. i think painting it black would look nice with the paint and black parts. it's just too much work for me.
