Damn A+++ D I Y, I wanted to do that for my driver side headlights, cause my passenger one is black , so now it looks like panda eyes, anyhow my driver side headlights are scratched up because my friend told me if i wet sand it with a 1000 - 1200 grit I can polish it or some crap and now it looks so smudge.

This picture confuses the hell out of me. What is with the core support sticking out below the headlights like that?

in this picture that is not there.



what the f*** is going on cause my car dosent have those two beams sticking out past the core


Is this just like an extension of the core?

I know this is a old post but im curious if anyone painted their lights to match their cars and not just black. I mean like red/silver/white/blue etc???? id love to see some pics. my hatch is silver and im thinking of painting it the same shade of silver but would love a example of color matching. great work keep it up
