My take on updated front end..

Gonna install tomorrow but probably *won't get around to washing and taking pics for a few days..

Started with a OEM 2005-2007 chrome grill...



Popped in an OEM blue oval, took some measurements, made some marks, and cut to fit..





Final result...





Started with some OEM 2005-2007 headlights..



Didn't *want harley lights, didnt want ebay projectors and dont really like the projector look in this housing but i wanted something a little different..Disassembled them and texture painted the orange reflectors with a metallic black gloss...

Technically u made them illegal when u painted that reflector. Tinting it would have been a better option or getting the lights with the clear reflector and using an amber bulb would have worked. They tried to get me when I had clear 02 corners but I had the amber bulbs so they let me be.

I'm a step ahead of your thoughts...
Tinting would have still mde them orange, just a darker orange..
I have never seen 05-07 oem lights with a clear reflector ...
They are still "legal"... I replaced the running light/turn signal bulb with this giant led...it lights up (running light) bright white and blinks (turn signal) orange..
