Finally Painted my Headlight Trim
I Really didn't want to go with the Aluminum, so I went ahead with the Car Color, what do you guys think. I will post more pics once Installed.

Looks good... cant wait to see the pics

PS: are you worried about your headlights getting fogged up in the rain/heat/carwashes? did you do anything to prevent this (if theres even anything you can do) let me know

i installed the aluminum trim for my coupe and it never fogs up or anything, and I didn't even use the supplied rubber seal trim

Where did you order the paint? I want to custom order some for a Ti Silver.

You get the Paint from www.towerpaint.com all they need is your color code and your make and model.

Do people who take apart the headlight housing have adjustment problems with the lights after they reinstall them? I want to paint my headlight trim but I don't want to get my head readjusted by the dealer and pay some ridiculous amount.

gee none of my mods will remain unique huh ;)

Dev 06-14-2002 10:30 PM

Val: one way to remain unique is to not share the idea. Hehehe. Hmmm, I'll do mine too -- in Ti Silver. I guess I get the best of both worlds (to match the OEM color for this trim as well as matching my body color too!). Silver is faster! :D
