those headlights should be a very nice mod for you cpelton.
Simple de-ambered headlights look awesome, but the retrofit goes above and beyond.

cool stuff.

let the cutting begin! My parts showed up for the retrofit and I pulled the headlights apart tonight and cleared them. Don't do what I did and leave the cookie pan in the oven when you preheat it.. I melted part of the plastic clips on the back of one of the headlights.. no biggie but just a heads up for anyone who is going to pull theirs apart. 6 minutes at 220*F was plenty. Painting the surrounds to match with Bikergreen on saturday, hopefully have them back together with projectors installed sunday!

will do, I'm also going to do the washer/colour mod to the projectors to get more of a blue flicker at the cutoff.

Thats going to be a wicked set up!! If I didn't have the one car I would be all over doing a full retro but I'm just going to stick to painting for now - maybe I'll pick up a used set of head lights to run in the future so I can pull mine apart again for some cutting - Good call on the BWN shrouds, does that include the angle eye??

Sounds cool, but in all truthfulness, I hate the angel eyes on Subarus. They are made on BMWs and should stay on them. I feel they completely kill the clean look.

Fair enough I guess I just like them in general so I would have to check out pics of subie's with them to decide...

The lightwerkz stuff is pretty cool, and the peanut eyes look great with modded headlights. Should be a fun project.
