hi!

yet another update (they're prolly gonna be almost daily from now on)
idk if i mentioned it yet, but during the tow we screwed up the crossmember and the drivers side headlight. the guy who was pulling the focus is buying me a new crossmember, and i just traded for some Hella headlights. i decided that black plastic wasn't for me. i dont seem to like anything stock, i have to make everything my own. i went to murray's and bought some textured metallic paint from duplicolor. i tossed on 3 medium coats, and a coat of clear to help the headlights endure highway driving. heres how they came out.
click the middle picture to really see how good they look, compression kills it.







they look that cool dark charcoal grey color in just ambient light. in direct sunlight they look jet black with silver metal flake in it, almost like a completely different paint. i'm loving the look, and the lights, either way.
