    The black looks good but I would have sprayed the matching red as in the wheels.

    Home Depot

    2- 36" acrylic blind adjusters $1.99 each

    Radio Shack

    4- 4004 diodes $0.97
    8- 4mm white LED's $20 for all 8
    4-330 watt resistors $0.97

    Total Cost- $28.00 for both headlights

    Basically just cut the acrylic rod into two pieces of equal length, and put them in the oven and softened them up enough to bend easilly. Then I formed them around objects such as soup cans or drinking glasses, and then snipped the ends of them off to leave for the LED's. They look just like the factory one's except they cost hardly anything to make, and it was fun at that! Here's a pic of them fresh out of the oven



    Those are the miniature version of the halo's, here are my one off 6" halo's that I put on my off-road lights behind my grille. I have never seen anything like this before, which Is why I did it. Cost me about $20 to make the set of 2 halo's, but I thought they were cool as hell! I am going to make a set of blue one's for my S-10 next summer, check them out!

    dude those are sick!, how'd you wire them, straight to the battery?

    Each halo has one ground wire and one hot wire which I soldered onto the LED's, I grounded them to the frame and the hot wire to the battery because I don't ever splice the factory wiring. Then I ran a hot wire into a switch inside the cab and the switch was grounded into a metal bolster plate in the cab, I had them seperate from all the other lights so that I could have just them on at night time by themselves. I also had a quick disconnect on the positive side of the battery because of all the lights, it came in handy when the truck sat for long periods of time. I tried to keep it clean under the hood, but once you get the lighting bug it's hard to do LOL!

    They also make translucent spray paint (black) that blacks out tail lights and such. Used it on my truck and works great. looks good

    I considered it, but I am thinking about painting the red inserts on the rims black.
