I think niteshaded tails are cleaner and you don't have to go too dark. A dark cherry red would blend better than red lights popping out from a black car.

I agree with not blacking out the wheels. I suggested gold or bronze. Def not black.

I'll do some photo shop on the wheels and post up. Free mods are always good. So shortening antenna and painting mirror caps will a good couple free ones. I'm not crazy about night shade though becuase I feel it takes away from the shine and creates a dull look. But I do plan on cracking the lights open and blacking out. Does it reduce the reflexability though, and make the lights less bright?

If you clearcoat over niteshade then wetsand and buff with a polishing compound it comes out as glossy as paint and looks damn good.

For the headlights you take out the headlight reflectors and tape over the turn reflector. There are how-tos up. It doesn't affect brightness at all since you leave the reflectors alone. Just cleans up the look.

I am planning on painting my headlights possibly this weekend. Just need to plan a day when I don't need the car for 24 hours and the wife isn't home to see me sticking the headlights in the oven.

Nice car! One thing I would do, would be getting my hands on a set of smoked housing headlamps for it, especially where you have a dark car. Blacked out is over done too much, but when its all sorta dark and shady, that looks cool.

Updates.

Head unit it. Wanted a nice clean one, nothing flashy, something close to factory look.





Also started prepping my wheels for paint.



And a confession...
