Too cool. The 'Blackedition' is awesome. You are to be congratulated, you car is awesome. Something to be proud of :thumbsup:

The headlights are sweet. Did you buy them as a kit, or did you break apart yours to do the installation?
 






Hi Vince Thanks so much...now if only they have a lowering springs for the Exp and i would have done it too...since its too early all companies i've called didnt have one...:(...i have a guy who installed one on my bimmer...and just had that crazy idea since our Exp headlights are rounded...it has to be pulled apart and silicon them back in together..they did a great job they do this in a lot of BMW and Audi and Benz...

It's hard to believe that is actually a "base" model Explorer. Well..... was. You would never know!! Ex looks really good. I didn't think I'd like the angel lights, but they actually look awesome. You have a head turner, man. I also like the carbon fiber wrapped rear spoiler. Sic. Good ideas.

How did you get the angel lights in???

Thanks buddy...i like buying base models and work my way up...i have a friend that installs angel eyes on bimmers...i ask him to put it on the exp...its really bright and can use as daylight running lights...and at night with fogs only open the angel eyes lights upr pretty bright...:)
 






You are the MASTER :)

It looks really amazing especially the HID
 






Looking clean, but I would take off the black edition logo. Also think about blacking out those tips. I just blacked out my whole exhaust on my lifted F150 and it looks great. You can remove the tips and powdercoat them black or just plastidip them first and add some high temp paint as a top coat. The halos look really good.

Thanks buddy..was thinking of putting HID on the fogs but then it might be to bright and cops would nail me...LOL

I was trying to continue the flow of chrome from the wheels to the running board to the exhaust...making the chrome all in the buttom...but might consider that black exhaust..might be that cool..plasti dip i agree easy and cheap way if it doesnt look right just peel it...Thanks for the comment...

Hey that is a beautiful job, great looking rig! Also, kudos to the photographer!

Thank you buddy...i really thought my photos sucks maye i need to buy new monitor lol

Its a carbon fiber vinyl wrap..you can actually do it yourself if your good at it just buy a sheet of CF wrap on ebay...as for mine i have a friend who does wrapping and i paid $50 for the hood and spoiler together...

loving the angel eyes...how much did it cost you?

Angel eyes is kinda pricey..$450 they have to open housing and put the eyes and silicon close it again...
