Here's the latest build coming along....Mr. Midnight2012 will be the owner of these "stealth" heads. I love how they are turning out...but it's not easy. Flat black marks very easy...hence another white glove build!

FX-R projector w/ 3" lens
Apollo v2 shrouds w/ custom aluminum shroud extensions painted flat black
Reflector buckets have been textured and painted ultra flat black
XBA amber LED angel eyes

Cheese 'n rice, Bil! You are an artist! And so humble!

I think you should put something on the inside of the housing right in front of the projector so it will project an image in front of the truck - like a 'Bat Signal'.

Bil,

Looking awesome!! I was concerned about how the flat black shrouds would look since this was a first, but I'm extremely happy with it based on the photos. Can't wait to get these on my truck.

By the way, I'm not that active of a forum member but I joined this forum due to this thread and your work.

I'll def. post photos once they're installed.

Thanks!

That looks badass! I may consider flat black and blue flame instead of gloss black... Looks great Bill!

X2,

No one or no company i've dealt with has the customer service and dedication to their customers, as you Bil! Any time I have called/emailed your quick to answer/respond, always there to help or answer any questions.

I can't speak highly enough about Bil or the quality of his work. Imagine a world where everyone treated their customers like Bil does. Where every single customer is the most important customer.

I'm really happy for you Bil that this endeavor is paying off for you. I wish the best of luck to you, and your family.

I meant just an office decoration. Lol, not a melted in "badge of manufacturer" - no, no, just a simple on the wall deal.

Hey Bil, I'm in the same boat as Franchi; I know I had a basic idea as to what I wanted but after seeing all these new combinations, I have no idea what I want to do now. Where do I sit on the list now? I'm not in a huge rush to get it started (I'll let you in on a secret if you promise not to tell anyone on here....I'm thinking about jumping ship to a Mustang....but shhhhh; our secret)
