Open up the headlights and paint the outer plastic shroud black too, then it will look right.

nice window trim, its black! not chrome. I hate that chrome junk on std 3s, looks so bad.

Get some solaris chrome bulbs and painted front reflectors.

wow great job on the wheels man. I love the look of those. thats exactly what I'm going to do this spring.
If I were you I would do
black kidney grills
lightly smoked lights(all around)
spray paint headlight housing
spray paint bumper grille and trims around the fogs

yellow high-beam bowl paint-job would look sick too like you mentioned

also what kind of paint did you use for the chrome trims around the windows? plasti-dip?

Sweet!
Leave the lights! Or get LED versions.
Id get black inner headlight pieces, smoked corner indicators, paint your bumper reflectors, and get black emblems to complete the look.
