Default My custom headlight work

I recently had a good friend of mine work on it for me, he has tons of experience with headlights and electricals for leds, with tons of car certs to back it up (5 certs and also Toyota certified).

I must say my headlights came out absolutely amazing. I had them blacked out, shrouds color matched, leds on strip. I watched and helped out when he needed a hand for the whole project and they came out flawless, looks like it came from the dealer. I wanted to pass on his awesome work to you guys in socal, i will attach all the pictures to this thread of his work.. I have over 400 pictures and narrowed it down to a few. He lives a minute or two by me in SD and the turn around time is 3-7 days depending on urgency. I am almost certain his work is better then what most shops do out there. Every single led and resister is soldered and shrink wrapped then drilled in bullet proof along with epoxy on each hole and cross wires. Each headlight is stripped including every harness/wire/bracket before baking so there is no long term damage with resistance of wires. The chrome housing is prepped both the back and front before actually applying the paint. The factory sealant is re-used along with more sealant added to prevent moisture.

In the pics pay attention to the details on his led work/painting/ and resealing.. the seal is almost better then factory seal!!.. here are some pics..

I just helped finish up another set of headlights from a 370z owner from Vegas, so he should have pics of his own shortly.
