    Thanks for the link. Does it have to stay black or could I spray it matt silver? And why do you only have 1 angle eye per side? Does the shroud stop them fitting in?

    It was his choice to have one Angel on each side..The shrouds do not stop them fitting in I have shrouds with Angels too.You can spray them whichever colour you may so choose.The shroud is just there to stop the light refracting off the reflector and scattering everywhere

    Ok thanks. Was just wondering because I will order thinline Angel's with the HID's so was just curious.

    And I wasn't sure if the black was to absorb some light as well

    Thanks anyway think I know everything I need to now. Sorry for being a pest

    I wouldnt paint the shrouds unless oyu intend using high temp paint as normal will burn off or catch fire.

    Hids will be fine and when you have the lights on you wont be able to tell the colour of the shrouds anyways

    My choice as Stk said, they still fit (the angels), I just wanted to be different. They also fit behind the standard lense although I de-lensed mine.

    Is that your car in your avatar? Get some pics up, looks nice!

    That was the day I bought it.



    When I put in the cheap ass raceland and thought the adjustment was the opposite of how it really worked. So I was driving around with the car lowered 100mm

    Just have to get vaders now and install my cruise control and I'm done for a while. Still not sure about m-tech bumpers since I see more with than without.

    EDIT: Since the picture in the rain I raised it and put on mud flaps. Still haven't got the passenger door resprayed thought :'(
