Default 100% stock custom headlights

in the process of making custom LED ring 6th gen headlights. not willing to spend $150+ for aftermarket ones. i know this is a shot in the dark, but does anyone know the circumference of the opening inside the headlight around the bulb housing? i dont have a spare set of headlights to open up and check.

Not sure, but you could do it the math way. Measure the diameter and then multiply it by pi.

Just measure across the lens to get the diameter of the circle and then divide that by pi. It won't be exact but it should give you a pretty good idea.

That is for both clear lights and the yellow turn signal bulb openings. All three openings are the same size but they look like they aren't
