Cool Nine8Six's custom projectors

Love the Carrera GT style shrouds
He probably won't be making these indefinitely...get 'em while they last!

Nine8Six custom headlight projector kit.
The price can't be beat, either. There are many color combination choices and even a new angel eye halo option

Ambient light devil eye effect (daylight only, no backlight).

Looks great! Though you do need to request some white bumper plugs for x-mas.

What's the next mod on your list?

Bumper plugs, lol!

The 6 month plan is to remove side stripes and add aftermarket front bumper cover and side skirts

Also in progress is a Cayenne style flip key conversion. I kind of put that one on hold for the last 3 months because I had trouble getting a key cut properly from keysinthepost.com.

I like it because of how how it fits in my pocket without gouging my leg. The switchblade style key blade is pretty slick, too

Good plan. I've always thought the side stripes were so 80's, if you know what I mean.

Just sayin'..............

They work really well on silver cars and black cars.
Those are best.

I want these headlights in titanium finish with gun metal inside reflector thing, the one that's currently cheesy disco mirror ball color stock.

The new lights look great, but I'm pretty satisfied with my Litronics, functionally and cosmetically.
But...Does anyone know if painting the interior of the lights black will significantly reduce the signal from laser speed-detection devices?

I'm sure black innards will not reduce laser speed devices.

Not sure what a lateran is, lol, but they are full spectrum LEDs. I happen to like green

Does this suit you better?

In all honesty though, I don't think I'll use any of them most of the time. They're hooked up to this thingy called a switch.

I love the 80's and the stripes

But, I also like change, variety, and being different...obviously

What color is your car? Red, I'm assuming...?

Cool! Like a mood ring for your car. Green for everyday tooling around. Blue for date nights. Red for the days you put the 94 octane in it!
All kidding aside, they are pretty doggone slick, but I'm not sure I've got the geek cred or the street swagger to pull them off for my ride.
I wanna see the red installed.
Mild bummer if I can't rationalize them as decreasing the odds of a laser ticket, but our rides are reportedly already comparatively hard to get a good bounceback signal from the laser...

I wonder if Batmans Tumbler is immune to radar.
