Unless you are really familiar with all the technology involved, I wouldn't really recommend it... And, yes it's pretty simple, but a good understanding of the physics of light is helpful and not something that everybody has. The alternative is trial & error, but it's tough to beat $90 to get the look that you want. I've gone down this road a few times (not for Angel Eyes, but other products), and I usually have to re-do the creation/install a couple of times to get it the way I want - by which time it ends up costing at least the same amount (for me, usually more!). I guess when I think about spending $90, I question just how much savings I could acheive by fabricating stuff myself (and would it really look better)...

However, if you're really into DIY stuff, you are sure to find lots of topics about DDEs/Angel Eyes...

Just my $.02

cheers,

GTC

great reply, makes sense, i can probaly do it my self but i dont think its really worth the time and effort. I guess i'll just do the $90 Jlevi's and there known to be good.

Thanks!
