Default Finally did some mods...

Yeah they were easy mods but everyone has to start somewhere. Just to let everyone know that I just cleard my front corners and if I can do it ANYBODY can do it!!! Also put a Supercharger overlay on my third break light. I am now waiting for nightfall to see what it all looks like.
Oh yeah...what lights should I get now that my dorners are cleared...I have read somewhere that there are lights that are coated so that the orange doesn't show??
Thanks,

Mac

for the lights, many of us use the silverstar bulbs that have a chrome/orange blue look to them, and blend in much better than the orange bulbs do. Others mist a set of orange bulbs with a light coating of gray spray paint.

Here is a front shot...while doing this I noticed the right lens was like new and the left was well worn. I have noticed other things that have pointed me to think this car may have been in an accident. Does anybody have Carfax available to run the VIN number and check it out??

Your car is looking great. I'm not sure where you live, but if you don't require a front plate, I bet someone could get you a hookup for the plate cover.
