Question DIY Angel Eyes

I am going to attempt the daunting task of making my own 'Angel Eyes' from the old thread on here. I was wondering if anyone out there knew the radius or diameter of our headlight housing. This way I can start before I take apart the front.

It's about 4.5" in diameter to answer my own question.

I love that do you have any pictures from different angles? Also what did you use to make this? I love that look and that is very similar to what I was wanting to do. I want mine to act as blinkers as well because with my flush mounts on coming traffic cant see if I am turning. Thanks for any info.

you can, mine are hooked up to the remote system for the shows, but if you can hook them up as markers and flashers. when you use your turn signals the marker lights in your turn signals actually go out. if you hook a relay to the positive flash wire and run it to your leds it will make them flash. run the leds from your marker lights and have a secondary wire for the flash. i also noticed the audi's do the same thing

That looks awesome.
Do you have any pictures of them close up and off?
I'd like to see what the angel eye's set up looks like in the light housing when they are turned off.

Looks slick BTW.
