New headlights and my pet black widow haha

So i started my project on replacing my headlights that i regrettably blacked out this summer and as im under the car taking the undercover off, i remove the last bolt and set the guard aside to see a black widow hanging in my face. I am much like a 6 yr old little girl when it comes to spiders so needless to say i got out from under the car rather quickly. I had actually ran about halfway down my driveway before i caught myself lol heres some pics of her
This is where she was

this is a pic showing more or less the **** caught up in her webbing lol

heres actual pics of "her"




Anyways on to the actual project, im sure this is an everyday project to most but its the first time ive really done anything myself beside lights*EDIT*lights as in led lights and stobes not headlights*, and interior work. i also replaced my belts yesterday. I had to get creative with the wiring of the the headlights since my passanger side had a short somewhere that i couldnt locate and i dont have money to get it fixed currently so i spliced into the drivers side and ran the lights over to the other side haha . Sort of ghetto i know but you cant see any of the wires and i have two headlights again so w/e!


i forgot to take pictures when i first got the headlights on so these are from today haha





heres at night





im missing the bumper light in this picture because the bracket that you screw it into is broken so i used sparayfoam to fill that gap to have somewhere to secure the screw into and i had to wait for the foam to harden before i could put it back in

let me know what you guys think!!!

yea its like that because all the acuras who rep honda emblems (i know same compay) and from far away the angles look like an acura symbol. Its kinda a joke with a few of my friends against the "rsx crew" in my area lol

Nice improvement! Thumbs up from me...

Oh and the last time I jacked up my car I found bones lodged into the frame big enough to make me wonder if the PO had runover a person...there was a little flesh in there too, it was gnarly...All dried up and buuuhhhhh...

Re: New headlights and my pet black widow haha

haha yea those are getting mixed reviews. but heres the reason i changed em

1.) you can't put enough layers on the headlights to make it actually look black (like the taillights are about 5 layers of night shade) or the headlights wont be bright enough, therefore in the day the headlights had more of a purple tint
2.) i had an hid kit that really balanced out the black out making it seem like normal headlights, but those went bad so it seemed almost like i had no headlights
3.) when i did the black out i forgot to clean the headlights really good so the paint job was really spotty and kinda ****ty.

and i was always mixed on the blacked out headlight look, it grew on me when i first did it but then the look kinda died off and i didnt like it so much anymore. I love my new lights just wish they were one piece but i had bought these like 3 years ago for my first prelude and never got to put them on so they were already sitting in the garage

The color scheme of your car also looks like a black widow. It's just an observation.

i dont know why they would say its ricer, i think the exact opposite since the cars that really pioneered the halos to be as popular as they are now is like the beemers and benz's

Re: New headlights and my pet black widow haha

So my question is.... Why didnt you just strip the "black out" head lights? I ask because they look like they are 1 piece jdm ones or jdm knock offs. I have had the projectors like yours and they suck at night.
