    Custom LED Headlights

    Guys, I've finally finished a big project that no one has ever done before. I've been custom making Acura-style LED headlights for the GTS, and they're finally done! They look spectacular, at least in my opinion. What do you think?

    Why is your hood narrower than your fascia where they meet between the headlights?
    Red. Because I didn't have to settle for blue.

    I have no idea. It's misaligned a tiny bit, as the front ends of these cars often seem to be, but even if it was perfect fitment it would still be a little bit off. The carfax is clean, but who knows. Maybe it's just a hood that came out imperfect? Damn it I never even noticed this until you mentioned it!

    Mine is shaped like this. Follows the yellow line I added to your pic. The gap in front of and on top of your headlight is also off in your pic. It should be snug against the fascia in front and 6mm gap on top.

    Oh yeah my baby needs some work on the front, but I'm not ready to tackle that monster amount of work yet lol. One day for sure though. It drives my OCD crazy when I think about it too much.

    I'd say no, simply because this took a ton of work to make and, being a software engineer, I'm too time strapped to want to make that a thing that I do, haha.

    Light output is about the same as stock, just a nice, white color.

    Unrelated question - how did you mount your licence plate? Is it some kind of custom setup? What is it mounted to?

    L-shaped bracket from Lowes, used for joining timber + the heaviest duty 3M automotive tape and one screw to make sure it never falls off. I hated drilling into the bumper, but since I don't plan to ever leave VA and I'll always need a front plate, this is the best looking and easiest setup I could find.

    Look awesome! what I would like to see is an updated Led taillights to resemble the Gen V or something similar. The rear end of the RT/10 could use that update.

    I thought about doing this a few years ago, but it's actually more difficult than you'd think...

    Ha, looks quite interesting.

    I've cracked my lights open on my GenI to put in strobes and also tint in the past. I'll vouch it's not easy! You have any fogging issues after doing this?

    Love seeing offbeat customizations like this.
