Its all good, I understand your position...just remember that we dont all want the same thing for our cars. As far as the tint film goes, I have seen some really bad applications... More than good ones so I didn't want to go that route. I am really good with a spray can so I knew I wouldn't mess it up. Anyway....there is always paint thinner. Lol...

Yes... the beam pattern of the inside reflectors are crap. The beam is scattered and goes everywhere. Putting HID's in there will not only not help... it will make it worse for on coming traffic even if you aim them down.

As for tickets and you knowing people that's all up to you. What bothers me is what other people see. Mainly you signal and no one can see it because it's black. No matter how you look at it..even with the reflection. With them that dark unless you are running super bright LED turn signals I highly doubt you will be able to make them out.

And this isn't about being the same. Trust me.... LOL... bro if you knew me like most people on here you would know that I am the minority when it comes to my car and being a follower. And I have spray painted more things than you will ever know. But weather is weather...and sand is sand.

Prime examples from my own ride:

Fully painted inside. I don't have a picture of when I re did it with the just the reflectors not painted

Here it is with stained glass painted outside.

Then that started to fade with the sand and road debris.

Than....Amber tint from Tearoffguy ( Larry ) Who also does smoked tint. It's the way to go if you want it light or dark. And it's worth it.

Here is also a before and after image of the tint he did for my retro fit projectors.. Now mind you... with the reflector material on the inside it would be brighter. And this is light smoked.

Finally got around to replacing both sway bar end links with new Moog links and ES bushing for the links and sway bar. Upgrade stock front sway bar to NX 28mm sway bar.

the LED's i just bought a month ago DIED! so i replaced them with a a different LED bulb, but now i am running a single led rather than 4. the single led is MUCH MUCH brighter than my previous led's. At night, i could probably pull them off as headlights, the only thing is they have very little output they look sick though. Ill post pics up sometime.

Hey chef, i used to have those lights. Even put hid's in them at one point. I put them in in the old days when i was more ricer than i am nowadays, but the halos blew out, and they started to look like shit.
Old days.


But this is what i put in. I love these headlights better.

Right on. Like I said they were on the car when I bought it not too long ago. I like them enough but I saw some one piece that I like, but mechanical is my main concern right now with some little stuff inbetween.
