Prep like you would normal paint. Then spray until desired darkness is achieved - remember you still need to see light shine through. Also cops could ticket ya for tinting tails. To make them shine - wet sand, and clear.

If your gonna paint your top grille white, you need to do the bottom one too(never been a fan of painted grilles on ANY color).

Rock Auto has brand new fogs for $6.00.

If your gonna get different headlights, the only ones that I would recommend are Dynabeams, ST170's(fairly cheap on eBay & bat.inc), or Mach's. While your at it - just get a Euro grille too.

again with the spray tint convo. they are very similar. i've seen flat and glossy (not cleared) VHT; and flat and glossy rustoleum. it really depends how you use it.

Ya i found some methods on here and they are done. i will have pics up later today.

I am still on the fence about the lower grill, the euro grill is where i am leaning towards .

As far as headlights are concerned i am looking at a R8 looking set unless something pops up i like better before i get them done.

Fog lights are another matter entirely. I would like (not to say i can have) the style that is used on the newer focus , with a plastic frame and a roung fog light in the middle. but i will have a look at the ones you mentioned to see how i would like em.
