Tony,

me want...

Are you just a regular dude that wanted to figure this out in his garage? ... Or do you have a shop?

I am just wondering how the sales part of this is going to work.

You might considering licensing the technology to someone that can spit these out by the 100's.

They look great. They are a little dark for my tastes during the day but at night they are perfect. What would this look like on stock "RS" tail lights?

Thanks, Mike

Very nice. Every time I think I'm done doing mods on my Camaro for a while, something like this pops up. Subscribed!

Well, as regular as an engineer can be. As mine are now done, I can start thinking about those details.

Im in for a set. Show the sign up list and price and lets get em.

I'll go buy a new set of lights and have em shipped. Let me know.

Those evening shots are badass!! I've been talking to my girl about these lights for months and normally cars don't get her excited, but when I showed her a side-by-side comparison of the concept (orange vert) and your pics you jumped up and said "holy shi#% those are cool!! Are you getting some? You better cause I'm tired of you talking about them!"

Damn fine work.

Here is a day pic with the tint and without. I'll get an evening shot without tint in about an hour and a half.

It's nice that you can even see it in full daylight... Without tint anyways.

I'm diggin what I see so far. Looking forward to seeing the night time pics with non-tint. Also curious if you could take some video at some point showing braking/non-braking at night. In any event looks really great, good job on all your hard work.

That's the look we're all looking for, I think. Looks amazing Tony. My guess is that you're going to be nailed with an influx of requests/orders to do this. It will probably be overwhelming. Might want to just sell kits for people to DIY. Just my 2cents.

thanks for all the hard work

+2 Maybe you could offer three options.

1. Finished product with exchange.
2. DIY kits for those brave of heart and small of wallet.
3. Franchise it out to installers and builders across the country. (This might get the most product out the quickest)

Why not what was involved with the production? Looks like some tint honeycomb covering. Was there really anything else so extravagant with it? Hopefully not to crazy expensive, or else stock will do for me...lol. would really like to know what was involved with it.

I think he had to completly redesigh the tailights and IMO what ever Tony decides to charge it's going to be worth it,
hell!! 100's of people are paying $200+ for a few LED's aranged on a semi circle that looks nothing like afterburners

it doesn't look like he did any redesigning of the housing....


there's still a black outline around where the housing has a step built into it. close up images should show how much ther eis.


you can't get the effect out to the edges without modifying heavily the existing housing or making a new housing...
