Thanks for the compliments.

Actually, Chris has had my headlights for a couple weeks. He's sending them out probably today!!!
Yes, They are black!

I try to keep her clean, The birds and trees try to stop me. Time to break out the Zaino again too.

Hey everyone,
Instead of putting in clear or blue turn signal bulbs and risk getting harassed by the police, try this. I took the amber bulb and put a very light coat of silver spraypaint on them. I put everything back together and haven't had any problems in over a year. I though the paint might flake off from the heat, but they still look perfect! Plus they are still amber when they light up! A little less bright, but not by much! Tell me what you think!
Andreas

Same as the emblem. Sanded it down enough to rough it up. Sprayed it with epoxy primer and sprayed it with single stage. Didn't see a reason to use base coat clear coat. Still matches perfectly. The mesh is still like it was from the factory. I just cleaned it good.
