Lets See Some Light: The Definitive Lighting Thread

NO PICTURE NO POST! I wanna scroll through here and see pics of cars

I figured i would create this thread for people to show off there headlights, tail lights, signal lights, anything that disperses light and makes your car unique or to show off modifications that you have done.
-Complete headlight swaps
-HIDs
-Retrofits
-Fog lights
-Tinting
-Aftermarket Tails
-JDM lights
-Interior lights
-Puddle lighs
-Etc...

If you have something cool, post up some specs or information on how you modified it or what you did.

Here is my S14 with retrofitted RX330 projectors. Has an amazing cutoff and makes me feel like im driving in a luxury car at night



And just for craps and laughs, my girlfriends car with pink hids:

Yeah they have awesome stuff but they were on a bath salt spree when they wrote those prices.

This is very true. You can do probabily get some one to do it for you and it would be cheaper. I go there for ideas with my LEDs

Uhm, yeah holy shit...you can get a whole freaking front end for the amount they're asking for just a headlight kit it seems. I mean I'm sure it's super high quality, but damn...if I'm spending that kinda money on headlights it would be on a Bimmer or some shit, not a 240 lol...

Who the hell do you guys think actually buys some of Mike's stuff? It sure hell ain't guys in here. Clearcorners been around since this site was up for the most part. Been converting lights to look OEM since before most of you guys knew what the hell a 240sx is. Just in case you guys dont know who owns/runs/makes those lights...its our in house sweetie poo named IXFXI. So that would explain why anytime there's a lighting related thread pops up, he usually does a cameo.

He'll be in here soon enough...

But in the spirit of the thread, here's my contribution:



Acura TSX retrofit with Supermade clear lenses and blacked out housings.

I did read in a thread the article on the good the blue and the ugly, and surprisingly....it didn't sway me away from "blind everybody and kill the roadways" eBay Bi-Xenons.

Looking to see what a lot of people post in here as I just picked up some H4 housings....but they were shattered on arrival, so I don't know what to do but the stock garbage has got to go, s13 popups.

Nice try but she only uses them at shows. Don't be a douchebag. I don't think I have ever heard of someone getting blinded by overly bright fog lights, moron.

many of you know I do a lot of projector retrofits.


personal retrofit- rx330 lows, mini bixenon highs, custom mirror acyrlic shrouding




this was a single rx330 retro I did for a member here. I'm sure he has output photos.





retrofit I'm currently working on. it's going slow. write up at link below



FX35/FXR into s14 240sx (Zenki) housings. Simple reflector -> projector retrofit, L bracket technique..

zenki with aftermarket bixenon projectors. They aren't the best, but fair enough.




beat up zenki with infiniti fx/ e46 shrouds and my own made clear lenses



the yellow glass capsules look like shit but I didn't do that. The reflectors would be ruined if I had removed them.


lows:


highs:

And why dont you shut the fuck up and stop getting butt hurt in every thread around here? Nobodys swinging on nobodys nuts. Mike knows his shit, and does phenomenal job on his shit. I've seen some of the stuff that came out of his shop first hand, you cant even tell its not fucking OEM.

As much as an asshole he can be, he's one of the more respected members in here.

I never once said anything negative about his work. I know what he does and how good he is at it. But shit like this:

Butt hurt doesn't even apply here. I'm not offended about anything. Also, this is only the second thread I've been negative in lately, not every single thread I comment in. It's a forum, if you can't handle negativity then give up at life.

haha, you need to go our with more car crews. I've seen many, especially those 2000+ Celicas with HIDs on their fog lights or Honda and their PIAA fog lights. Pain in the butt, especially on night canyon runs.

You might want to get off your high horse while you still can. There's no "nut swinging" going on. That image wasn't just created, its kinda old and serves a purpose from an older thread.

http://zilvia.net/f/tech-talk/445638...ngel-eyes.html

Step away from being a badass for a bit, it's not working out for you.

Thanks.

You clearly have me mistaken for someone else or you are just assuming stuff. I'm not on a high horse. I'm not trying to be a badass. I'm simply saying what I see. You're slightly offended because I quoted you. Thanks for sharing the origin of the pic, but don't expect everyone to know exactly where it came from. Step back and look at it from an outsiders perspective and I think you can see where I got the nut swinging notion from.
