Plastidip plans for Mk1.5

Hey guys, I had a look through ~80 pages of the Fun with plastidip thread and was inspired. What do you guys think?

I'm a fan. Do it :)
Tho I'm not a fan of the two front/side bars and the rear bumper bar thingy.

Ask Riley how the whole plastidip on windows thing goes. lol.
where are the side moldings? either leave em or you gotta fill the body in where they were. as for headlights, it should be fine, but that'll mess up output some i'd assume. I also dislike the whole bumper thing you got going on. Some guys have done the lower third of the car following the molding lines, and it looks cool, like over the arches on the wheel wells and such.

Haha no, the windows will just be 5% tint. Im probably gonna do the headlights with just regular spraypaint and swap to LED bulbs or something. I kindof just photoshopped the whole thing at once, not all going to be dipped. I dont think mine actually has the side mouldings that the Mk1's do. Ill have a look at the lower 1/3 of the car thing, in my head it seems like it'd work

Don't paint the headlights if it'll block any output. LED headlights won't be any brighter and will glare really bad. as would HID's. any darker than 20% tint is just bad looking IMO, and you will get tickets for it. i'd say 35% up front and 20 in the back is about as dark as it should be

They do sell headlights without the chrome inside, and it's this guide that I was looking at:

Already bought the 5%. You're right about the tickets, so I might just get some lighter for the fronts. Though there are tons of people in my town who have done 5% all around
