you remove the bulbs so u dont get paint on them. you put them back in when you are done.

yes, thats the only area that you paint. any paint should do for black. for colors, they say you need glass paint. i have never seen it, nor do i know where 2 find it, but i will. wait a couple of weeks. when i do this, i will b sure 2 post pix just 4 you.

that would be great if you are free.. Only worry is the reflection off the cover. I think it would look good with my angel eyes on but I still like the chrome backing for contrast..

Ok, Its not the best looking Photoshop... but I think you can get the idea looking at the leftside... on the right, it looks funky for some reason... the lighting maybe

Yeah, It'll look meaner!!! But a nice intercooler would make it more M-GASMIC

Can't wait till you start sneezing or whistling
