I just wanted some opinions of my latest project which essentially was a twist on the koji mod with the PVC piece and hid projectors.


















Check out my build thread if you're interested. If not, then have a great day!

Thanks for the insightful thought. Good thing it's not on your car right?

I did yes, but I just thought there could've been a less rude way of stating such opinions lol. That's all. Oh well though, I like the way it looks and that's all that matters really. Thank you again for your opinion though.

You would probably get more opinions if you posted the pictures in this thread instead of just providing a link

This is a thread advertising your other thread? (advertising since it provides nothing new from the old thread) This should be deleted.

I thought this was a randomly placed gun thread

My gripe with it besides the fact I don't like it, but to each his own is this...Why would you put it on a turn signal which would effectively blind it from view at certain angles? If someone doesn't see your turn signal it could potentially cause an accident. In extreme circumstances albeit but just some food for thought. That may also come up in court if such a thing were to happen.

^^^ I think that's the whole point of the "flash suppressor mod". If you are familiar with the koji mod, it's a piece of PVC that hasn't been cut, so it does block the light on the sides. With this flash suppressor mod, the PVC has slits and cuts, allowing more light to show through from the side.

I think that's correct haha

Well I respect the fact that you just don't like it hobo. But the PVC piece was specifically cut to allow more light through. It's been tried and tested well, because its been on my car for quite some time. If you had read through the build thread you would have understood the reasoning behind that. And I'm sorry but no, there will be no court because it is all legal. Regardless it's your opinion and I respect that hobo.

I understood the reasons behind the slits in the plastic and the design all makes sense I was just bringing up a point. Same argument with tinted tail lights.

Notice how you can see the LIGHT through the slits of the PVC piece.
