They both look very good but i will have to go wit the body colored on. Unless you also do the eyelids-----> now that would look nice with angel eyes. By the way if you have angel eyes where would be a cheap place to buy them
(not the kit)

Im as lost as a gopher in a rabbits hole...?

I like the lighter color. I think small spots of minor contrast are a lot nicer than big chunks of continuous color.

I think it would look kind of nice to make the kidneys glow slightly, would go awesome with angel eyes. Actually I want the whole grille to glow
