    my brother was a designer for honda and while he was in school many vehicle designs were shown to be inspired by animals


    it was really interesting to see some of the concept drawings that showed animal faces being transformed into vehicle front ends frame by frame

    no the outer lense was never sprayed. They were lined with a tinted film. I just removed the tinted film in the area that the light shines through and left the remainder of the film on the outer lense.
