    it goes thru where the oem bulb is and has an alignment washer so it can only go on one way ensuring proper alignment still needs to be tweeked before sealing but not as much as say FX-R

    Looking good so far. There are times I wish I had painted my reflector bowl black.

    What are you planning on sealing them up with?

    I was going to say to use the window weld. You don't even have to wait on it to dry like you do with silicone.

    also headlights are from ebay. they were chrome with clear turn lens and clear side reflector not orange, so when i tint side relector it will look like the turn lens and not orange plus taped off under the reflector so it is still chrome underneath so it hopefully will still reflect
