    There are some members that have these lights. I doubt it would be a problem, but maybe they'll be able to give you some feedback.

    Yeah hopefully. I thought I might have seen them on here before but I wasn't entirely sure. I'm just being lazy lately and don't feel like spending the time to paint

    I don't think so... Just do the BHLM with Dupli enamel and you'll get similar results. Only $6 instead of $100.

    I can pull it off in about 2 hours because the paint has to dry.

    This is with Dupli enamel,

    Yeah, I installed projectors so it's actually better because it doesn't reflect unwanted light beams.:D

    So you can't do halogen in those? Thats looks super clean though. Maybe something I might do down the road :) I guess I'll paint em to save money but I really wanna see what someone who has the k2's says.

    No you can't do Halogen in the projector. It's a complete kit from theretrofitsource.com.
