could you make it more reflective by buffing it or putting some chrome spray paint on?

I have already connected with a few companies who will build them. I just have a full plate so the corasponace will be slow to begin with. I just donít want to set up false hopes on the time line.

The idea I've been toying with is going blue for some of the lights. My (and my husband'*...don't want to omit him ) car is white, and we thought that slightly blue lights would look pretty cool. We are already getting the blue headlights/foglights, and we were wondering if we could make any of the other lights (turn signals, etc) blue as well. We know it is illegal to have "forward facing blue lights", so we couldn't do the front turn signal, but the others appear to be fair game.

What does everyone think of the idea? Is it possible? What about a blue bulb under a clear lens? Suggestions? We don't want to get "ricey", but we do want a uniquely attractive look for our Bonne.

The 30 dollar comment was in regards to the rear lights.
Custom lights will not be cheap. I am going to get some pictures of different light styles and use them to get an idea of the kind of system that looks good. Finding the right combo is going to be the hard part.

About how much are we talking.....i know you dont know for sure yet, but could we get like a ball park figure? say like in the ranges of $100-$200-$300? im thinking about doing a tail light swap now, but clears would be sweet. if they cost Too much, might as well go for full on custom ya know?

We shall see. Actually, we would never try anything that might get the cops in the area upset at us...they really seem to like us right now; I wouldn't want to jeopardize that.

I do think it could be sweet though (I just want to carefully ride the line between "custom" and "ricer" ).
