Much better for on a budget.

Have you considered opening up your headlights and painting the housings black for an SVT style headlight? The only things you need is black paint and silicone to seal the lights back up.

Yeah I was considering painting the inner part of the headlights or possibly buying them they have some black inset OEM's for like 120. I'm still on the fence about the brows I painted they look decent because of the hood blends with it. Just looking for some cheaper exterior mods because I'm looking to put more money into the motor.

I'm just glad you didn't do the fuel door, thank you. Try playing with the headlight brows a little, you might like them wider.

I wouldn't dick with anything exterior. That thing is CLEAN and being so adds value to the car.
Suspension, brakes, minor engine mods and call it done.

Thanks man I want to keep it looking stock and clean. I'm done with exterior mods now just wanted to do the rims and brows. Now moving to performance wanting to get the SVT suspension kit, brakes, short ram or cold air and a tune. Wanting to keep it natural no turbos or s/c.

Looks great. Did you paint the black trim on the doors also?

No actually the trim and the rocker panels were already black I think it's factory. I did paint the front bumper to match though. Made it look a lot better
