    Will be interesting the see the results.

    Do you have HIDs or standard Halogens ?

    If you don't have HIDs then you will probably notice a drop in headlight intensity.

    Just have the standards in for now but have some LEDs on order. .
    Got enough to do the back lights first to see how it goes.

    Not sure if I will do the fronts as I don't think it will look right with color of the car. . . The backs I am hoping will come together when the windows get tinted.

    Yes, I was wondering about the headlights being too dark if tinted for the colour of your car.

    Rears should look good alongside tinted windows.

    In fact I may copy you and do the same on my wifes' FR-V :Tongue::Whistle:

    Go for it mate haha

    I might give the fronts a try . . The stuff is cheap enough to play around with.

    Make sure you get the proper spi vision stuff though. . Tried the fly eyes etc in the past and wasn't as good.

    I intend on matte black dipping the handles. Mirrors . Rood and front grill, , the front might work then so definitely be giving it a try.

    manageD to give this a go on the rear lights today..

    much harder to work with on larger curved surfaces... plus it didn't help that it was cold outside so the second you took the heat off it , it would cool too quickly..


    it is far from perfect but I am p,eased with the result.. few very slight creases but need to be looking for them to see them..

    finished product:

    When you said you were going to tint the rear lights, I wasn't so sure but now that you've done them I think they look good.

    The chrome along the rear boot lid looks really bright now !
