Good job! I like how the 01-03s looks with retrofits!

I'd like to retrofit my 04-05 head lights... Scared that I'm going to mess it up!

Yeah. Thanks. I gotta just try it out. I'm thinking whether I should do this on my stock head lights or some aftermarket angel eye ones. Or, I can use the OEM replica.. like the ones from Robearracing. Though, I'd like to keep the OEM look as much as possible.

I saw these pics the other day. I don't remember where this was posted though (maybe Honda-Tech). Looks sweet.





I really would like to try this out as a summer project!

Btw, +1
