Euro headlights - I want this
I already have euro headlights, how can I make them look like this?

I assume you take them apart and paint the fog reflectors? Anything else?

Yep basically you take out the reflectors and paint them with Krylon's Stained Glass paint http://www.krylon.com/products/stained-glass-color/
Or Metalcast wheel paint. http://www.pivco.net/index.php?main_page...ts_id=2250

It also appears the inside surround was painted a darker shade to gray. All very easy to do.

Paint the reflectors or the inside of the lenses? Not the actual silvered reflectors surely? Huh

Yep, I know the issues, but it is the silvered reflectors.

RE: Euro headlights - I want this
or you get LED in the parkinglights and 24volts in the fogs, looks kinda the same,
24volts give that yellowish light, and the LED the Blueisch tint.
but that depends on how yellow you want the fogs.,

how i have it myself, can get pictures.
i have it mostly to not need to change anything like, forever, the 24volts live long, as do the LED.

id say "shit" since it is a new car, and that yellowish thing mostly fit older cars Smile
but hey if you got a spare set of headlights, give it a try Smile

Not sure, i've seen it done on a few cars but with US or orange indicators and it looked good. Have a look at the photoshopped image but I think they would look better in reality.

RE: Euro headlights - I want this
lol lol!! I just saw this, thank you for the input.
Perhaps the tubular & wood slat roof rack I have in mind will balance out the shit-ratio?

RE: Euro headlights - I want this
I did it to my fog reflectors with glass paint and it looks great. Got some Osram yellow fog buster bulbs too to complete the look. Would post a picture, but these days I just cant with my iPad for some reason.....
