    I'm starting my retrofit soon and need some thoughts.

    I have a white and black tundra. Have put a lot of work into getting rid of the chrome.

    I'm being advised to do the housing black but leave the shroud chrome for lighter colored trucks.

    What do you guys think chrome or black shrouds?

    Why is this so difficult haha :)

    You saw my retrofits. I left my shroud chrome because I am not deleting the chrome on my truck. If I were in your shoes, I would black everything out.

    Pretty much in the same situation ... Thinking of replacing my Spyders with a set of custom retrofits. I'm thinking all black would look better since I removed the chrome.

    image.jpg I I'm deleting all the chrome, but I bought my retrofit with the chrome shroud. As I don't like chrome the headlights still look good imo. And love the headlights

    A little of this and a little of that.
    @stefan702 If I were you I'd go black shrouds. In fact, when I get my Spyder's I'm going black, but that just MHO.. I think your truck would be totally BA if you had the black. BTW, your truck is lookin' awesome!

    With YOUR truck I'd go with BLACK as well.

    Since I keep my chrome I'l keep the bezel and shroud chrome while the bowl will be black.

    Panamera DRL shrouds (Left) have the built in LED's. They are also smaller ( about the same size as the apollo 2.0 and 3.0 shrouds
    Panamera Shrouds Original (right) does not have an LED built into it. They are also the biggest shrouds avaiable. Too big for most projectors (without cutting). They fit the FX-R and Murano Projectors perfectly as those are big projectors.
