    I was wondering if anyone has any pics or has seen these on a BSP with and without the bhlm? I'm trying to decide which would look the best. Thanks.

    I will have shortly. I'm just painting them now and will post some pics when I finish. I'm not doing the bhlm. I like the bright eyes look with the Trexes. It looks meaner I think. We'll see.

    Sweet. Pics would be awsome. Do you have the chrome grill surround?

    I think yours are a little angrier. In Canada, the inside markers are the daytime running lights and your lids seem to drop down over them a little more.

    I want to order a set but would want them to line up with the top of the triangular "grill" peice. I think it looks good and keeps the same line across.

    i know what you mean. On a BSP though it is not really an issue because the triangle is black anyway and there is no break in the lines.

    I'll probably order the eyelids, get them painted and then, when the weather warms up (yea I know, I live in FL) I'll blacken the headlights and do it all at once.

    Here's something to consider. For the Trex look, you might want to not do the Bhlm. The bright eyes look is much more in keeping with the Trex/angry effect. The bhlm subdues this effect ( my opinion ).
