All he wants to do is fix the vinyl stripes he has. Not invest in something else. I'm the one that should buy a kit. I've bought so many spray cans, I could have bought 5 kits by now.

Looks good, and I like how that ez-lip turned out as well.

Im unemployed right now so can't afford the Euro head lights yet. I would do the head lights myself but i've never attempted it. I've read/watched the instructions and it seems difficult.

What's the worst that can go wrong with trying to bake/paint the headlights?

That sucks. I wouldn't bake and paint them, get you a good quality dark vinyl or nightshade and paint it to look like it has an eyebrow.

racing stripes are off for a while now... I didn't like the blue anymore and it was way too flashy looking haha.
I still want to do rally stripes but it will be black next time.
I've been thinking about some fender flares using some 6" black carbon fiber vinyl I have laying around, but am unsure of how it will look

How do you attach the EZ lip? Drilling?
Vinyl stripes look good?

@CunFFS13 The EZ lip just attaches by itself - it has sticky tape. But I ripped my EZ lip off a bit when I accidentally pulled up too far in the parking space and must have caught the curb.

The vinyl stripes do look good but not in that color, which is why I took it off.
Next time I will do black stripes, and will order higher quality vinyl. I really like Rvinyl's vinyl and Lamin-X's vinyl as well.

Looks good! I had an EZ Lip on my old Scion and I ended up drilling holes through and zip tying on.
