im blacking out my headlights right now...only thing you gotta buy are paint (im using semi gloss) and glue. all together less than $10.
also you can clean your headlights/taillights with rubbing alcohol and liquid wax.
and like everyone probobly said:
clean corners, exhaust tip, shift knob, grill, taillight/headlight tint, paint your wheels/caliper, and many more that i cant come up with right now lol

I let you know on any MPG changes.

Adios, David
Yea the sound isn't super loud butt it adds a nicer tone. And there is no gain in hp from doing this.

I've always assumed the term "clear corners" meant clear lens side marker light assys.....Ebay $20. Here's my HD lip mod also.

LED tag lights (39mm Festoon bulbs)

Cost: $8 (eBay)
Time: five minutes (depending on how stubborn the lights want to be when you remove them)

They look kick-ass

I got some white led 194s laying around. Never thought to use them in license plate lights. I'll do that tomorrow.

From what I hear and have felt in others cars that have done this mod the vibration is minimal or none at all..
