Amazing how the little things can change a car's look. Though is is just me or is there still a hint of yellow/orange where the bulb sits?

Aha, I had no idea about that. Thanks for that info!

Wait, what about all those gents who run blacked out headlight housings with blacked out reflectors?

I'm sure just like here it doesn't matter as long as the bulb is amber. You could run a clear bulb that burns amber and be fine. I ran with frosted corners, and all white turn signal bulbs for a good 8 years with zero issues. I then went back to amber because it looked better with the hids instead of looking dim.

Most of them aren't fully blacked. People usually keep some reflective part for an amber bulb or turn signal to reflect. If they're fully blacked out I'm not to positive. Is having just the clear bulb that burns amber enough to be legal w/ no reflective surface? Sounds like a state to state issue.

All4Spinnin your car looks great. I really like that slight amber touch left in there anyways. Very clean for a 5yr+ old car.

just for you...





it was some what easy to do. is there flaws still? yes... im not body shop. eventually the bumper will be goin in to get professionally finished.
i used the bumper repair kit. comes with 2 part epoxy and plastic mesh screen. also you can get just the 2 part epoxy but the only place i found that actually stocks it is autozone. everyone else has the kit but not just epoxy
thinkin about putting fogs back on. look better to me now that i did this to bumper.

edit** see previous post for finished product

No sir, the light is blocked by the chrome. I agree though, it completely cleans up the front. I plan on getting rid of the amber bulb and replacing it with an amber led that looks white.

This headlight setup plus 05 tails plus some white wheels should look ok

Thank you very much. The goal is to keep this car clean and simple compared to my 06 sti from a few years ago

Thanks a lot crazy, I'm definitely going to do that when I get my hands on a GA plate (so I won't need the front). As for the interior....I have no idea how dirty it's going to get, nor how to clean it; only finished it 2 days ago. If you see if up for sale in the classifieds then your answer it "this is a ****ing PITA to keep clean"

Allb4spinning, aha, glad to hear you're getting some new wheels. I didn't want to mention how the wheel's color looks a little off since I can't even keep my new car as clean as your old timer!

I see no Bosozoku, you need a 5ft tall star for exhaust to be Bosozoku



Look up Bosozoku bucket, then get one

Wasn't trying to troll, you just felt like posting a pic of a ridiculous bosozoku car.

Looks good none the less "bro"
