Just the "silver" shroud that surrounds the projector.

Ya, I saw your price for the 2013 retrofit. Still steep, but I assume that's only because the initial price of the OEM lights. As such, I elected to single out Ford's crazy pricing rather than yours, hahaha. I any case, I'll patiently wait for my 2012 style retro's instead, haha.

Quick photoshop job of the rims, which just arrived and are going on this week after I get em back from powdercoat place who is adding a thin blue pinstripe around the black rims. Rear will be dropped two inches to make it leveled out and shouldn't be much wheel gap with the Nitto tires I got.

Doing everything kinda similiar to how I did the emblems.

Or, for non OEM HID headlights, FX heads with the reflector bucket painted either flat black or a dark gunmetal tone, the shroud painted blue flame metallic, and the same tinting for the turn signal and amber reflector.

Appreciate it Bill!

Could you describe specifically which parts would be the blue flame and black? I dont know the difference between heads, reflector buckets, and shroud. Just so I can give specific info when asking him to PS it.

I'll post better pics when I can. These things are too glossy to get a decent pic! The heads are so much better looking than I had expected. Bravo Bil! Another satisfied customer.

Woohoo...you got them Stumpy. They look right at home on your F150. Take good care of them, they were my first pair of retrofitted headlights, so I have an emotional attachment to them!!! lol

I sure will! For some reason the passenger side doesn't fit quite as flush as the driver side. Only by a mm or two. Nothing big. I can't wait to try these bad boys out at night time. Now I'm dying for some snow.

Are you referring to the face of the lens? Can you loosen the three mounting bolts to nudge the light back a bit? If you are taking about 1-2 mm, that should be easy to adjust.
