Reggie, I had a quick (possibly stupid) question. Are your angel eyes more visible during the daytime since the headlights are matte instead of a reflective chrome? Also, how did you paint your turn signals?

Thanks for the comments guys:

as for tinting the turn signals, i use VHT nightshade tint spray.

I am going to open up the original set of lights now to and redo them as well and get a some silicon to help seal the headlights better, causeeee these ones i dont think sealed well cause both of them fog up a little... ='( soo no pics till I get these done nicely!! i dont think i am gonna to tint the side marker either, might be to much black for my liking. what do you guys think?

they are way more defined with the black housing, the chrome mad it look just like a blob of light if you know what i am mean. I have HID angel eyes though soo that might be why. can definately see these angel eyes in the daylight

How did you get the paint stick on the chrome? Did you strip the chrome? What did you use to do that if so?

Nice mods!! Personally think caliper should also be painted, next mod maybe?
What do you use to paint your air intake scoop?
How much do you pay for the rear skirt?

Plz post some more detail about the headlight retrofit, I'm also interested in doing so withing the next few weeks!
