    My twist on DRL/turn signal housing

    First off please check local laws before attempting not responsible for your actions.Well just got my glass I had cut back today and couldn't wait to put it somewhat together. I had some decals made for a honeycomb appearance for DRLs and sidemarkers to match rear lights they looked alright but wanted something a little different. I cutoff lenses and painted inside of housing hi heat gloss black and finally found a black honeycomb mesh to lay under the tempered glass I had cut. Like I said not done its taped together for some pics I have to paint a black outside edge on back side of glass and seal with some black silicone. Really looks nice just sitting there unlit but glare/mirror effect makes it hard to take pic in garage. I have a housing still chromed also (whats left in there) I can take pics of together but I like the blackout effect. Hope to have wrapped up this weekend but car won't get out of garage for few more weeks because of a couple other lil projects on her! All done and hope to take some pics soon last pic here is just taped up for trial fit before sealing up.

    I do got one question.....why would you want to black out the shinny part that reflects the light forward? Doesn't that detract the light, making it less visible?

    the gloss black does refract light pretty good (better then I thought) before you spray a chrome paint use a black base or undercoat for better look. but i put together before spraying chrome and liked the black better. heres a couple of pics of finished light but couldn't pull out of garage to many projects in way!
