a couple mod questions...

I have a 2001 SE and i was thinking about painting the headlights like the svt but doing them in red (like the color of the car). Is painting headlights as hard as everyone says? Is it worth it?
Another thing i'm thinkin about is the flat piece that goes right on top of the gauges (the one with the wholes in it) Has anyone painted this yet? if so, how did it turn out???
Advice needed!!!

From what I've heard, painting your headlights isn't hard at all. I'm guessing your main concern would be to make sure you have a good seal to prevent condensation and leaking.

As for the gauges, I'm sure it's been done before. Try searching for it, maybe it'll pop up.

Yeah, that is my main concern... is it better to do a flat or a gloss? anyone think that red headlights would look good?

It's totally up to you since your car is an extension of your personality. Which do YOU think looks better?
