take the headlight covers off. Leaves those in the 90's and to the puerto ricans(sorry if offended)

Every thing looks good man. But I do have to agree that the headlight covers looks kind of off. I like what I did with mine, it gives it that aggressive look, plus you get to loose the amber lens. Cost. $3 for paint.

I like em' myself. My only suggestion would be to slap some black polished rims on there to compliment then.
Otherwise:thumb:

the tail lights are blacked out, except for circles that i put in there so i wouldnt be pulled over, as well as for them to match my headlights

ive actually thought about white rims, or chrome. what do you think about white? think that would look good?

all you have to do is take the headlights off the car, there are 4 bolts holding them on
heat up the seal, either a heat gun, blow dryer, or i think someone also mentioned putting them in the oven for like 5 mins? dont remember the exact details on that...

getting the lens off is the hard part... after you have the lens off
just take the headlight assembly appart. then primer and paint the chrome whatever color you want... and if you want to remove the amber turn signals, now is the time for that aswell...

and you just do everything in reverse when putting them back together, and you can strip out the old silicon, and replace it.... or i think if you use the oven you can reuse the silicon to seal it...

you can see mine in my sig

edit: the guy with the "angel eyes" in the Most unique mod thread, explains how to use the oven to heat the headlights, so that you can remove the lenses
