Angel eyes inquiry

Does anyone have angel eye like the concept one head lights? Would morimoto's be similiar to this? Will the night time viewing be better or worse?
I've also used the search but wanted to attain something like the concept one look.
Thank you

They are called halo lights, and I think they make kits for just about any car.

Sorry you are in such a foul mood - you can't expect to sell a civic every Sunday -

the concept one's halo's appear to be formed/masked/painted clear acrylic that have a halo mounted behind them. i don't believe any off-the-shelf projector shroud is offered in that style. with the right tools, it wouldn't be difficult to replicate by a motivated individual--there's nothing custom or unique about the design that would prevent a typical tool shed equipped hobbyist from completing a similar design.

the inner projector is a micro gatling gun shroud, which is offered through a number of places, but the projector itself that is that size has crap output, so it's aesthetic-only.

This is what the Morimoto switchback halos look like on stock painted FRS headlights. https://86speed.com/morimoto-xsb-2-0-switchback-halo

100mm

Here's what it looks like on our stock housing. Closest pic of the headlight I have. Honestly if you're not right up against it, it looks flush

Hello thank you all for the input/information. Now I've got several options.
Before the 86 I was in the market for NSX/FD(JDM)/A80 MKIV/C7/Porsche and am a little critical on the looks department to further bring out its uniqueness to my own eyes that others don't see/appreciate(for example)(from experiences on past old projects,...). Wifey wanted something brand new instead and having driven the AE86 i went with the twins after test driving which met specific expectation/feel I was looking for.

If the stock body of these cars are nice. I'd like to achieve that 'nice' as well even if its rice cuzz racecar. ^_^

Thank you once again all.
