Never seen clear turns in an SVT grille before that would have to be hand made.

Another idea would be to cut a piece of window tint and put it over the signals. That's what I did to tint my fog lights and it's held up really well so far. Plus, when your sick of it or ready to sell, it just peels right off and you good to go.

buy a whole roll of window tint for that? did it reduce the light from your fogs?

It would be better if you can get hold of some scraps rather than getting a whole roll; it wouldn't take much.

And yes, it does reduce the light but any form of tint will do that. The turn signals a very bright so you won't have any problems with visibility if you use window tint.

i seee. i'll ask around for some light tint, if i can't find any, oh well.

i tried putting on my hatch trim today, but all the bolts are broken. so i need to figure out a way to mount it up. i have double sided tape but there is no flat surface on the inside of the trim.

got my windshield replaced yesterday. she's a beaut.


got bored today so had a mini-shoot.








i know my car may be boring to look at, but i have alot more things on the way. i still need paint for the wing () need to somehow attach the hatch trim, getting side trim from an S2 focus that will need paint, black housing headlights, and HID kits for headlights and fogs.
