They look good, Under_Flip installed his in the housing as well, at the same time he retrofitted in projectors.

I like it.

Don't mean to be critical, but..

Is there any way you can push the part under the red arrow down so it rides flush with the bottom of the headlight all the way across?

Corsa, you are a true perfectionist. I didn't even notice that but now it would bug me.

I just got my strips (2.50 each! plenty of length), but im confused as to the part of the headlight that you stuck the 3m tape on so that it faces outward.

will only the side emiting ones work, or will the forward emitting leds also work, as far as the effect goes?

I tried to do this same thing but without baking... you need a curved tool that can move kinda like your fingers. I used a wire hanger with electric tape around the end. placing the strip is easy. I just need to figure out how to remove the 3m strip while it is inside my headlight. then I could run the wires. My oven is not big enough to fit my headlights.

k so to answer everyone's questions about the leds, they are the 19 inch white led strip from oznium. I heard about this strip from aidensgrand's post about his new placement of them on the top of his headlight. I really wanted them under the light tho so they could dip in the middle but the strip was too thick :( so i decided to bite the bullet and install them inside the housing.
Please if yall do this plz plz plz seal the headlight back up with extra sealant because moisture will find its way in. Happened to me and i had to blow dry it out and seal them back up....
But anyways i have noticed the gap, its the strip being stubborn and not wanting to curve perfectly, i know your next question is gonna be well why don't you put more 3m or whatever...well 3m and any glue gets loose when its hot and i also have hids in so..ehhhh too lazy to open them back up lol

my next mod is 3000k fogs, hope its as easy as installing hids in the headlights. also has anyone tried putting led tailights? i really have been wanting to do this

sorry for the long reply :p
