Brian, Saw these on a MKIV GTi in my neighborhood the other day. Very distictive!

07-04-2004, 03:02 AM

07-04-2004, 01:25 PM
santorin blue. i forgot what color dan's car was, assuming it was also santorin blue.

07-04-2004, 01:37 PM

I am armed
07-04-2004, 01:45 PM
Can't wait to see the final product....

07-04-2004, 01:55 PM
Looks like you've been making good use of the housings that i gave you [:D]

07-04-2004, 01:59 PM
What are you using to glue those lenses back on? I'd like to open mine up for some black out action but, I don't want them to leak when I'm done.

07-04-2004, 04:15 PM
Nice work. Look forward to seeing the final product on a ride.

I used DAP Silicon II sealant Clear. After the 24 hours it takes to bond, I take a magnafying glass and check every inch of the seal for holes. Reapply sealant if necessary. WHen i'm usre it's nice and sealed, I moisture test it.

man your really putting some good work into this.. good job how long did it take you to do that 1 housing?

07-05-2004, 10:29 AM
Hmmm, looks like that paint could have used a little more work.

how so? i cant find any defects in it myself...

07-05-2004, 10:50 AM
In that first pic? Perhaps I just am too critical on that kinda stuff.

07-05-2004, 12:33 PM
Yes, there are some painting blemishes. It was the project owner's idea to paint the inside, since i had the housings open anyways. I didnt properly plan this otherwise it would turn out better.
It tooks me a total of 8 hours.

07-13-2004, 04:25 PM
holy crap that looks awesome , how much do you charge to do that???

07-14-2004, 02:31 PM
$130 Including the shipping back to you. $120 local. Group buy is possible.

07-14-2004, 10:48 PM
yer gonna need some help there buddy.

what is the total turn around time?

07-15-2004, 10:25 AM
Average is around 1 week. But if it really is that urgent (i understand you will be without headlights) i can ship back finished in a few days. The turn around would be quicker but I have a demanding job that pretty much takes up my entire day into the evening and my saturday.[:(]

07-15-2004, 11:56 AM
Looks badass dude! The 1st pic as said before has a notice or it could be just the reflection within the housing. But it could have used some more time, but the angel eye you are the freakin man when it comes to this ya know?

07-15-2004, 12:28 PM
Any pics on how you turn the on and off? Where is the switch inside the vehicle? or are they linked to the regular headlights?

07-15-2004, 02:08 PM
There are two options for control.
1. Linked to your parking lights so control will be through your headlight stalk. One click for angel eyes, Two click for headlights and angel eyes off. Your turn signals will function as normal. However this will require splicing of two wires.

2. It will get power from the housing internally. It will offer a mounted switch on the back of the housing to turn on and off.

For locals, i offer option 1 for free.

P.S. I'm working on an adapter for option 1 to eliminate the electrical work. But i dont have much R&D time so bare with me. [:D]

I've thought a lot about this mod, and I think I'll probably attempt it once I purchase projector housings, however there is one thing that I would really like to be able to do.

In the center dash there are those rectangular buttons for fog lights, rear fog lights, rear defroster, seat warmers if you got 'em. Would it be possible to purchase an OEM blank button that actualyl serves as a switch, paint or place a little decal on it and have the switch for the angel eyes located there, in a completely stealth, sick-as-fawk spot? I would be willing to experiment with this if the switches are available.

put a little "O O" symbol on it that gets backlit the color of your choice when depressed.

Would be the sickness, let me know what you think!


07-15-2004, 02:35 PM
Looking good but like Evil said, the paint could use more work.

07-15-2004, 02:46 PM
That would be awesome. I'd be interested to add that, but i dont know here to find those switches. and yes i agree my paint job wasnt the best. But this was a special request from the buyer that i complied with. So i did my best with the spray can.

07-19-2004, 10:38 PM
Here is the Final product. Unfortunetly i was unable to get the transformer circuit to work properly with the Audi, so until i find a solution no angel eyes. sorry

07-19-2004, 11:10 PM
where would i get the cathodes for doing it myself. i am planning on opening my headlights anyways, so i figure id give it a go

07-19-2004, 11:16 PM
xburbx your mailbox is full

07-19-2004, 11:25 PM
sorry, all cleared. pm away

07-20-2004, 05:38 AM
that car nees a good detail and a new hood

07-20-2004, 10:14 AM
yes it does. but the car is sold anyways.

07-20-2004, 06:14 PM
if someone could send the writeup on these to ipw102@psu.edu i would appreciate it

is there a write up on this?

05-08-2005, 09:59 AM
There is no write up, it was a service offered. But it has come to some complications and i just dont have the time anymore for this. So PRoject Angel eye is on hold for now. Others have tried this after i did mine, maybe they can help.

05-08-2005, 11:40 AM
ya ive tried to get these apart and its deff not easy. does anyone know how to do it

05-08-2005, 11:43 AM
How are those wheels treating u.. i recall when I had them

05-08-2005, 12:58 PM
if u r askin me i use em for track and street racing since they only weigh 32 lbs with tires. i have a set of 18 i use just to show

05-08-2005, 09:26 PM
do they make HId compatable angel eyes?

05-09-2005, 09:40 AM
my angel eyes were compatible for HID's. I have HID right now. To axxis, the wheels have been treating me great. They look good and since they never went into mass production, everyone asks me who makes them and where to buy them.

05-10-2005, 06:49 PM
after reading this i took a stab at doing it and man was it time consumming but omg well worth it in the end. they look so sweet. alot better than the 2 pieces i switched to just to have black housings. i havent tried to mess with the wiring yet but i will take pics tommorow at sunset so i can update me profile...hey if u wouldnt mind could u help me on the wiring diagrams. just pm me if ud like. thxs

05-10-2005, 07:12 PM
ok I want to black out the housings aswell
what does to do for light output?
I would think very little because they are projectors

05-10-2005, 10:38 PM
its not the painting thats bad, its the tape up job.... well looks like u missed a lil bit on the bottom too...

also try black silicone instead of clear, i looks better after it dries up i think.... its not as obvious the headlights were cut in 1/2

05-10-2005, 10:57 PM
the reflective part of the headlight housing is actually foil. So if you use stick tape on it, and tear it off incorrectly, it will take the reflective foil off too!!

05-11-2005, 07:52 AM
damn damn so i went to wire em today and only one worked..sob now i gotta re do one. i guess it woulda helped if i checked em before sealin em. live and u learn. although its so gonna be worth it in the end bc it looks like pure sickness.
