2003 cavalier custom halo headights
Sunday, February 03, 2013 8:58 AM
I hit a deer, cracked my headlights, got the insurance check, decided to customize my cavy a little more with halo headlights... looked everywhere online and came up with the single halo headlights...which I think look retarded... and I'm not going to spend $385-$425 for that..lol... I was researching on here, came across a guy that makes custom headlights, sent him an email, sadly, haven't received anything back... anyone know of anyone who could help?

Haha I was just browsing thru threads and I saw the author of this one and I'm like that's funny I don't remember posting anything about that.

But on topic, yes there use to be a guy on here (can't remember his name anymore) but he did custom halo and projector lights and stuff. Then he started ripping people off; taking there money and no getting back to them for months. Long story short I believe he disappeared and some people filed charges against him was a real ugly affair. Don't remember all the specifics cause I wasn't one of the ones he ripped off but I almost did buy something thru him before I came here. Dodged a bullet on that.

you talking about John Benham? I almost ordered a set through him a while back but I just noticed people were waiting a VERY long time. I figured I could spend the money elsewhere cause the car could be totaled by the time the lights were done. Looked like good work though....maybe you're referring to someone else...

Dang I didn't hear about the charges but I was emailing back and forth with him about mine and he told me he was going out of town for a while and was going to msg me back when he got back. After waiting a few months I gave in and bought the ones online. Then finding tutorials on how to make them. Glad I didn't place an order b4 he left.

lol... seems like something I may try my hand at... did you use your original headlights or order aftermarket and modify them?

Re: 2003 cavalier custom halo headights

used original this time, aftermarket the first time because the plastics r way stronger than the aftermarket TYC's but unless the lens in ur originals r good I used the aftermarket lens from the TYC's cuz they were in better shape.

What did you use for the turn signals? They look awesome.



Re: 2003 cavalier custom halo headights

yeah, I'm a fan of the LED in the corner, but I'm curious as to why you didn't put a halo around the LED?

the reason I didn't was because I couldn get a XB halo that small, they come 60mm the smallest ( and special order) and it would look weird with 2 different kinds of halos in there, the XB's r porbably the brightest halo I've seen, no other halo can match it, so I went with 1

and the led I used for the turn signal is this http://www.princessauto.com/pal/product/8182107/Clearance-%26-Marker-Lights/2-in.-LED-Clearance/Marker-Light-%26-Pigtail

I broke the amber lens off it which held everything in it together so when I broke it the chrome reflector just comes off so I sanded it, painted it silver, 2 part apoxied the other half with the lights to the cavalier chrome signal reflector, painted that black then glued the silver back to it and that was that lol. I'll post the start to finish pic this weekend

So after taking the reflector off are the leds colored at all? I believe in my state they have to be yellow or orange for the front.

their amber even though their clear with no reflector, once u use your blinker or turn your lights on they light up amber
