Looks nice from outside but doesnt look that good to me from inside, black trim on black interior does not look good at all(JMO).

Looks good but you need some smoked corners bad
put the smoked corners back on and redid the p46's. blacked out the inside of them added a frost/opaque layer to the halos, & resoldered the connections to the LEDs but some are still twitching prob gunna just change out all the LEDs to a different color amber/gold oem look kinda
