Default F10 Custom Headlight Build | World's First Quad Clear Lens :)

I just wanted to share a cool project im working on. Im taking out the F10 OEM LED Angel Eyes and swapping in the Umnitza Orion V2 Multi-Color rings along with custom paint (gloss black paired with matte black accents), a T1000 blue lens mod that i use in E60 and E9x lights (it reflects blue light when the xenons are off but only white when the xenons are on) and a world's first quad clear lens swap getting rid of that ugly ridged lens for the cornering lens. PM me if you're interested

You need a black car to test it on?

curious to know how hard/easy it is to open up the f10 headlights?...bake and pry like the e9x headlights...or a bit more work and cutting/prying like the e60 headlights...if you feel thats proprietary info, I understand

the internal mods we play pretty close to the chest....but as far as opening the Pre-LCI F10 lights, you have to cut them open.
