    So here's a pic of IamTaco's truck with his new projectors. I drew in some halos and R8 style LED's to see how it would look. What do you guys think?

    Not really. You do things to your vehicle to make it different and, in your opinion, cooler. So If someone wants R8 style headlights, they should get them. If they want a solid axel just because it looks cool, do it. We do things to our trucks because as the owner, we think it would be cool. Whether it's for engine performance, offroad performance, or purely asthetics, if it you think it looks better, do it. Just because it's not something doesn't mean you can steal the idea and make it different.

    Yea. I'm torn between the first two. I just made the third one to see what other people would think. I don't like it, it's just too much.

    Lots.
    To me it looks like an eye with eye brows with them on top.

    I like them on the bottom a lot though.

    I like them better at the bottom. Both makes it look like a girl batting her eye lashes at you.
