Can you please post a pic here once you are done with the changes. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.

i think it looks pretty damn good.. my next step is clear corners instead of the amber ones then clear/red tailights instead of the clear/red/amber ones. and then im going for some new rims...im thinking charcole...the whole image im aiming for is kinda a stealth bomber appeal.
