some pictures of my new bug eye projector headlights

I raped a set of projectors out of a junk set of Lexus headlights to put into a extra set of bugeye headlights that I have. It took a lot of thought to figure out how to mount the projector and still have full use of the factory aiming screws, but I figured it out and I have them all back together. I just have to mount the ballasts, wetsand and buff the lenses, and aim them, then I will post more pictures.

BTW... all the rednecks at my work hate them!

Whoa, it kind of looks like a giant speaker. I bet your car will look like a cartoon character with googley eyes when they're installed. And for goodness sake, get some chrome/amber bulbs for the turn signals! There's no need for color on a white/black car

I made it basically like you would make a fiberglass speaker enclosure.
It kinda looks like eyes, I don't know if I'll keep it white I just wanted to more or less see what it would like.
Oh yeah those amber bulbs are gone, I have either the chromes the flash amber or yellows.
I have another set of HID ballasts that I am using for my fog lights and they will be yellow.

Heck yeah I am, I am wet sanding all the nicks and scratches out of them. I have one finished and the other I just have to buff.

I like the clean look as well. I don't want it to look too clean though because it has a 100,000 miles on it, my shits not perfect anymore!

I can understand. Got to pay the bills some how. I will get at you sometime. But to your OP I wish I could see them in person. They are going to look great on the car.

Maybe, I will see how these ones work for a while.
I got them all installed but my daughter has the camera right now so I wont be able to download pictures until tomorrow.
