RE: TUTORIALS
I have been messing around with this lately trying to find the best way to do this, and I figured out how to make projector headlights and colored halo rings for any car... I am going to show you guys how I do it, and if anyone has any tips or advice they would like to add onto it, that would be great... This is a pretty simple trick, and it works for just about any car. The first thing you need to do, is go to the NA Miata/mx5... Once you have selected that , go to headlights and choose the PC headlights
[Image: Projectors%201_zps2lpvxslq.jpg]
Double click them so that the options show up, and click "edit part"... Once you do that, make sure that "move object group" is selected, and click on "copy part"... You should have something that looks like this
[Image: projectors%202_zpsw4zptp5z.jpg]
Next, you go to the car you want to build, and you begin building it (it may be helpful to move the PC headlights out of the way temporarily while you are building). I chose the d21 as an example. Once you get to the headlights, you want to add the stock headlights to the car (it could be another one as long as you don't put projectors on the car you are building.) The next step is to delete one of the PC lights. You are going to want to click on one of the PC lights, and delete one part of that light at a time. You can do this by going back to "edit part", and then clicking on "split part" (this is important because if you do not click on "split part", you will have to start over). Next, delete one of the PC lights. There are 2 parts to the lights, and you just repeat this to delete the other part of the light. You should then have on PC light remaining which you are going to want to adjust the scale of the light to fit inside the headlights. (Go back to "edit part" and click "scale" to adjust it.) You should have something that looks like this once you are finished.
[Image: projectors%203_zpsy9iq3mjp.jpg]
As you can see, there is one PC light remaining, and it has been shrunken down in order to fit inside the headlight. You then are going to want to click the lens of the PC light and go to "paint part". You then are going to want to make it black and slightly able to see through. Make sure you only do this with the lens. Once you do that, adjust the PC light so that it is inside of the headlight. Once you have it where you want, copy the whole PC light, and move it into the other headlight (you should only have to move it right or left)... This is the result you should have.
[Image: projectors%204_zpsq3oorobp.jpg]
That is how you make projector headlights, and it should work on just about any car.

Now on to the halo rings. This is also pretty easy. I am going to keep using the d21 that I was using for the projectors, but it should work with any car... Including ones that already have projectors. The first thing you are going to want to do is spawn in a generic intercooler. (Preferably the first one).
[Image: projectors%205_zps4xo07rrc.jpg]
Once you do that, start deleting parts of the intercooler until you get down to the 2 colored rings that are supposed to be for connecting the piping. You should have just these remaining...
[Image: projectors%206_zpsqfftxrpc.jpg]
Next, you are going to want to select these, go to "edit part", and then go to "copy part" just so that they don't get deleted if you want to add an intercooler. You should then go to the copy of the part, select "edit part" again, and you should then select "split part". Next, delete one of the piping connectors so that you have on left. Go back to "edit part", and go to "scale". Next, decrease the width of the piping connected to be as skinny as you want it. (It is somewhat hard to see in this picture)
[Image: projectors%207_zpslkcjfhdp.jpg]
Once you have adjusted that, go to the "rotation" option under "edit part", and rotate on the y axis 90 or -90 degrees. You should have the hole facing towards the front of the car. Next, you are going to want to paint it whatever color you want your halo rings to be. (Just go to "paint part"). You should be at about this point now.
[Image: projectors%208_zpsr4zfkqnz.jpg]
Next, you are going to want to select the halo ring, and move it right in front of the projector. Get as close as you can. If you need to, go to "edit part" to adjust the height and length of the halo ring to be as close to the size of the projector headlight as you can get. Once you have that, you are going to want to copy the halo ring. I have explained how to do that now so many times, that you should know how to do that by now. You should be at about this point.
[Image: projectors%209_zpso5emjujg.jpg]
You should now move the copied halo ring to the other headlight. Like the projector headlights, you should only have to move this left or right... Not up and down or forward and back. The end result should look something like this when you are done...

[Image: projectors%2010_zpsicw77a6i.jpg]
I really hope that this helped out some people who wanted to do either of these... I know it was pretty simple, but this is just a how to... If anyone wants to add anything to help or improve it, they are more than welcome to Smile

(You also can duplicate them to make things like this...)
