    Modding angel eyes

    Has anyone else modded their angel eyes?

    I wanted the tinted look (like the standard lights) but not the full black light like the 'tinted' angel eyes.

    So I took my new set of angel eyes apart and had the reflector sprayed black to give it the more standard look but still with the angel eys.

    I am also changing the angel eye bulbs to white leds to give them a nice clean white light.

    I used a hot air gun at work to warm the the bit where the 2 bits meet and pulled them apart.

    The stuff they use is really stiky and is quite strong.

    On the FK angel eyes there are 7 small bulbs (4 in the larger one and 3 in the smaller one). The bulbs just pull out to change them from where you get to the other bulbs to replace them but I am goung to solder LED's into the holders to give me the nice 'white' angel eye rings.

    Just waiting for Evil/Kirsty to get the LED's for me.

    Looks like them but not sure.

    I am just going to solder a led and resistor together and bend the legs back so they fit in the holder.

    The bulbs are the same size as the ones for the dash but with the holder like in that pic.
