so my next mod is simple yet no tsx that i have seen has it:p

this is the basic idea; pull the projector out, than break it down and paint the outside of the reflector amber(or orange but w.e)

So here we go!

bumper and lights off:




Orange painted reflectors:


Heres some shots with the finished product:










Excuse the filthy car:/ anyways its a very simple process, if anyone needs instructions on how to do this let me know ill be glad to help:)

I think this looks sick, and its not too much for a classy car

As unique as your idea is, I question the feasibility of the project. You're painting the actual projector (the glass part) red? Or are you just painting the metal cut off piece? That's not very clear. To each their own, but I'm not a fan of the look :-/ I think it's a bit much.

As for fogs, it's basically a preference among members. I find 3000k yellow better to run as fogs during bad weather. 4500k would look good if they match your low beams too. Can't go wrong with either.

no not the glass, the outside of the reflector which is the cutoff line. i think red is too much, the orange will go with the headlights bc theres already amber in there. maybe when i do it i can change your mind;)

did you notice a decrease in sharpness of cutoff line since it was painted? I would think there would be a small decrease since there is a layer of paint on the cutoff sheild.
