Well guys I decided to play around while my car is in the body shop this week. I order a new shifter and e-brake handle I am also going to get some pedals but but not what or when. I sprayed the front headlamps with nite shade. not sure if i like it or not. Any thoughts?

While I really like VHT nite shades, I am hesitant to spray the actual headlight since it is more permanent than a tint film. It looks a bit dark for me, but as long as it doesn't impair your driving and the cops don't eat you alive, then cool.

But I guess that is what the beast of an engine upgrade was for, you can just outrun those pesky blue and whites now.

I do have HID lights along with all hyper white light bulbs which are at least 5 times brighter than normal light bulbs. also took the orange reflector out.

Re: (jdsr917)

i got the bulbs at the local auto parts store. the orange reflector is just snapped in and removes with a simple pry of a screw driver

Did you have to separate the lens from the housing to get at the reflector?

I'm curious to see how that is going to look with the lights hitting it from behind. You need to hit it with a buff so it comes out nice and smooth, and gets rid of that orange peel.

Hurry up and finish so we can have pics!
