I always wanted to try out that complete set but honestly the price (mainly the shipping price) has always been uncomfortably high. Pretty sure that shipping quote is unfair.

yeah dude that whats bothering me. Your paying an extra 1/4 of the price to get it shipped. It costs me less to ship way heavier and bigger parts all the time...

The set (I think) would look insane though

I think I'm going to just black out my stockers myself as opposed to paying that price> I do have the blacked out side markers and the blacked out turn signals and let me tell you the quality isn't exactly that great. I'll try and get a video to show you

alright thanks man
The only part that I hate to think about when blacking them out (and why I have not even tried it) is because of the oven part


HAHa

I took this video at work. The lady in the background is a schizo and you can sort of hearing her talk to herself lol. She's cool as hell though

Do yall think the headlights are glass?

I wonder how it looks with the stock fogs? Or maybe put tint over them?

Yeah thats me. I actually have the camera here at work right now so I just went out and shot it. I'm keeping them b/c they look good, the fitment really doesn't bother me that much. I am getting rid of the angel eyes though. That's why I am going to paint my stockers.

You know what I was just thinking about. I remember someone in the DIY section said to use a blow dryer instead of baking them to get the lense off. That would eliminate your worries about baking them.

you could use a heat gun for heatshrink if it had an adjustable led display for the heat output. Using a hair dryer seems kind of sketchy since you don't really know how hot the air is blowing out.

I'd be interested in seeing some pics once they are installed.
That might be a little bit on the install seeing as i have to convert my 96 still, but i will defintely post up detailed pics of the headlights and give my first impression of them.

Has anyone ever used Hella Black Magic lights? They would probably look pretty good with this, instead of having fogs that don't match at all.
