DIY Blackouts with Lexus GS430 HID's (nights pics too)

I just finished up doing my diy blackouts along with retrofitting a set of Lexus GS430 HID's. I work at a lexus dealer and got the set for free from one of the techs. THe HID's were actually quite easy to make fit and took only slight modifications with a dremel. I would be willing to make a DIY guide if you guys are interested. I looked around on ebay and found that a set of GS HID's with bulbs run fairly cheap. Here are some pics, let me know what you guys think. :thumbsup:

Night pics now uploaded :thumbsup: :love:

I plan to put the on tomorrow. I already looked at the car and there is a cutout beneith each lamp right where my ballast are mounted. I assumed the jdm hid are mounted on where I mounted my ballast and they left space for them on the car.

Becase they probably worked at first, and when your browser shows an image, its saved in your temporary internet files, so reguardless of if the link is down or not your cache will show you the image.
