OSS Designs headlight conversion - complete!

My 1M with stealth/ full black-out headlight assembly and 6K by OSS Designs. I could NOT be any happier with the results. Let me know what you guys think!

It is an overnight process. I was not 100% sure what I wanted once they had my car dissembled that evening of drop off so it was a total of 3 days instead of the overnight (2 days). I was actually provided exceptional renderings to work with that initial evening. No code issues and more importantly leak/ or condensation issues what so ever! Pictures just do not do it justice. I feel like I have a new car. I am in the process of getting a shoot together to really show how different the car looks now.

I take it this is a US mod only and there is no way of getting it in the UK?

Nicely done. Congrats.

But the oem horizontal led strip seems to disappear a bit (in the pics)?

And what do the front turnsignal look like?

Cheers

Thanks for all of the pleasant words/ compliments. Out of state(FL) and international folks can have their headlights shipped to OSS to have this completed. Obviously a shop in your area will be responsible for the breaking down of the front end/ uninstall and rebuilding/ re install once you do receive your lights back in completed state. The option to ship your car to them is also available. I have a real shoot(not on smartphone) over the weekend, but I took these few shots in the meantime:

OFF








Daytime running and amber on / parking lights on






ON 100%




ON 100% NO HDR

Looks very different and cool. I also think that BSM might be the best color for this mod.

It is more flush with black. But regardless, it looks better than stock on any color. Here is a white 1 that was done before my own. This white one here has the grey assembly/ frame/ projectors and orange reflector jet black. The only black part on this set is the orange corner/ reflector.





The theme on my lights is a satin black assembly/ frame/ reflector, projector. Personally I feel the amber corner/ reflector should not be a metallic color hence why my theme is all satin black. I believe the owner was trying to match it two his window trim, grills etc. But my goal was not to enhance the corner like a trim piece but to more so detract/ to make it disappear almost appear floating like the new DTM cars as shown here, and I got close enough IMO:

Looks great!
