    alright i guess im done basking in the glory . time to let the secret out. they actually were not $600. overall they were about...$40. they are DIY. thats what the was for and also explains the stanley housings. it took forever taping them off to make them look legit with the barrier lines connecting the Us and what not. whole project took about 3 days because of the dremeling to make the corners fit, the maticulous taping, cleaning, sanding, and finally the painting which took awhile because it rained one of the days and i didnt like the first color. me, my brother, and 2 of our friends all helped out on different things. we sealed them back up with extra silicone and finished them off with some silverstars. i know we already have a few DIY threads but anyone who is interested and wants specifics can ask me.

    im glad it was DIY or i would have yelled at you for spending 600 dollars on it... just like my headlights, i could have bought them for like 300 but i did it myself for 6.50 and they look just as good, gave me some extra cash to put silverstar's in... believe me i know where your coming from when your talkn about tapping sanding ect... i went through all of that and it paid off...

    Lol, I knew they weren't jdm cuz yours has nipples. I just peeped out this thread as of right now, so I was gonna question the jdm authenticity. They do look good though, good job man. Almost had me for a minute though haha. I was like, "Yeah those look pretty coo.....hey wait a minute."

    Try craigslist, there are a lot of people in my area selling Honda parts on there, mostly for civics and integras, but it is worth a shot.
    Above all its a Honda
