No word yet Geno. Sure would be nice if it's soon though.

I received your paint sabciu.... OEM Dark Blue Pearl (Paint code DX)....and let me tell you, this is going to look absolutely awesome with the chrome reflector buckets.

The shroud is just placed on for the photos, there will be white XB LED rings mounted behind the Apollo v2 shrouds.

I took two photos, one with the flash, the other without.

With the flash:

Bil, let me get your opinion on something. I'm sure you have seen the 04-08 retrofits. I'm considering doing it and I'm trying to keep the "storm trooper" theme of my truck, but I don't want just black headlights. My question is, how do you think it would look if I painted the headlights white and the projector shroud black? Or should I just make them all black or white?

IMHO, I would go all white. Possibly with flat white reflector buckets for a little added contrast from the gloss white headlight frame/bezel and shroud.

Black shrouds would likely give the look of beady little bug eyes.

I'm looking forward to getting these done to see the finished product. I'm starting to think that the tinted turn signal lens may not look just right with these headlights, knowing how the front of your F150 looks. I'll snap some pictures before I tint the turn signal lens to get your opinion...plus it will save you a few bucks as well. Keep the tinted amber reflector lens though, for a little more of a custom look from the side view.

Thanks for the input. I don't know if you have seen pictures of my truck, but I just don't want too much black you know?

And I want to do something different than just some black heads, while keeping it looking clean.

Sure Bil, snap some shots and I'll try and visualize things from this end. So far they look pretty amazing!

Have a question for you Bill. With the retrofits, are the turn signal bulb included or do we just unscrew from the old housing and use it in your new housing? I was wondering if it was possible to have these LED bulbs or appropriate one added to the harness for a turn light:

Few more for you sabciu...The HID bulb is my 5Five 6k bench tester. I didn't want to take your expensive OSRAM CBI bulbs out of their box until final assembly.

By the way, my wife even commented that they look "beautiful"....consider that a huge deal!
