    Thanks YOSH for mounting the Retros into the Bowl & Aiming it!

    Now I finished Painting it and doing my own version of the BHLM to it.

    This is one of them done! My God they're BEAUTIFUL!
    :eek:

    It took 1 month to complete these in Stages so they'd come out Perfect!

    ^ Sorry, I'm not even going to count it up. Its wasn't expensive as most would pay as I did a lot of the leg work and YOSH was kind to help me on it too. He didn't charge me much as he gave me a Homie price. Thanks YOSH!

    Lol. I (and Ty) posted in that thread of yours and said you'd be getting retros soon. And here they are. Haha. They look freakin sweet though. Can't wait to see them mounted.

    Nothing cheap went into this set. I used OEM Sealant to secure it to give it a clean look. So they look real LEGIT!

    I want to take my time with them.

    This KIT alone was around $350 in parts.

    Then add a set of Like New OEM Headlights ($100)

    OEM Sealant was $20

    Flat Black Paint was $5

    Krylon Yellow Tint was $10

    Then add Labor to mount the Retros

    Then add Labor to Paint

    Then add Labor to Seal them back together

    Adds up real quick . . . Not Cheap @ all.

    Nothing against Blackhawke as his Retros are real nice also. However mine are MINT! A lot of detail and time was put into them and I didn't rush them one bit.
