Hella Black Magic Lights Behind Grille??

I want to put some more lights on my truck, I want a set of lights behind my grille, but I dont want them to be seen untill i turn them on, I was wondering if anyone has seen / has Hella Black Magic lights, i want to know if they're any good and if anyone has put them behind the grille / (could put them behind the grille and send me a picture of it ) and how they look.

The grille is almost Mesh, so its pretty see through, I just dont want it to be the first thing you notice when you look at the truck.

haha, its custom.

read the bottom of this forum to read what i did.

Id go with KC lights, but the whole point is for them to be as non noticeable as possible. The Black Magic Lights have black backings to them instead of the chrome reflective backings. I was trying to think of a way to cover the lights with black plastic and have them flip up or away from the lights when i turn them on.

slim lights would melt the grill
I too have thought about the Hella Black Magic behind the grill
in theory it should look great - still need to leave some space between the lens and the plastic grill!!

the link above is broken, at least it is on my computer here at work...
any way, i've seen your car domain profile interceptor, i need to see a pic up close inside the grill. I'd prefer to see someones pic/instructions on how they relocated their tranny cooler if they had too....i'm 90% sure my lights are too big to go in front of the cooler
