It all has to come off. It's basically the most painful job to do

Did you use the 2 can shadow kit by dupli color to do the turn signal housing or did you just go with the dupli color smoke metal cast ? I know you mentioned using the shadow but the link from earlier post brings up a amazon page for metalcast smoke . just trying to clarify before I purchase.

Sorry for the confusion. Ive done a few more headlights since mine and tried a couple different paints along the way.

My original headlights are done with Dupli-Color Smoke: MC206. The coating is a very light mist and close up, it looks textured. I liked it and it was easy to apply.

The other headlights I have done since mine are with Dupli-Color Shadow Kit: SHD1000. The base coat sprays out tinted and smoother but it's a lot harder to tell how much you are putting on, so you may go too far without realizing until it's too late. The finished look is nice if you nail it just right.

If your only doing one set, I would stick with the Smoke: MC206

I have received a couple PM's on what to do about the hyper flash situation when you change your lights over to LED. Since I have changed over my front turn signals to LED I was extremely frustrated with the hyper flash and was about to order the resistors to stop this from happening.

The reason for the hyper flash is that the stock bulbs pull a lot more resistance to flash then LED's. When you remove the OEM bulbs and replace them with LED's, the integrated circuit flash relay looks for this resistance to flash properly. Since the LED have a much lower resistance, you get hyper flash.

To resolve this you have two choices. You can add resistance to the circuit by adding 50w, 6-ohm resistors across each bulb circuit. This will add the proper amount of resistance to the circuit to make your blinkers flash normally again.
(HERE)(HERE)
are the resistors for this.

The second option is to change over the OEM flasher to one that is made for the lower LED resistance. I have found one being sold by FastWRX.com for $19 found (HERE) or if you are crafty like me you can use my part number below and link to purchase the flasher on Amazon for $10.

The installation takes about 2 minutes and it works great. It's designed for 4 LED's but you can use this with only 2 LEDs if that's all you have. The only difference is that when you turn on your signal, the bulb will illuminate for 1 second than start to flash like normal.

(HERE)(HERE)
is the link.

Here is the flasher I used.

Used the same module in mine. Works like a charm! Very easy to install and works just like OEM (minus the pause in the beginning).

Literally the remaining majority checked in with us via PM,email, phone calls, at events etc with super positive feedback. The reality is MOST want this for improved performance and NOT having to get coilover

We have NOT done any revalves in over a year and it is NOT necessary as the existing valving is fine for BOTH blacks and yellows.

What one gets with the Black springs paired to BILSTEINS is a damper that offers a LOT of control AND more comfort than the Yellows which are on the aggressive side.

(disclaimer: all references to BLACKS and YELLOWS is directed to RCE BLACK springs and RCE YELLOW springs). Had a bro roll up on me once " say my man, you said on the internet that Yellows are better than blacks..". I had to explain the whole thing to him. When we were done he wanted a Subaru WRX.

Myles
Thank you for clearing this up Myles! I will be installing my RCE Black springs with the Bilsteins this week. Can't wait!

Haha, it's been a while for sure. Still have the entire interior blackout to do. All the parts are in, just need to find time.

I've been doing a lot of side work lately for other members so its been taking up all my free time. Interior Alcantara work, headlights, coilover covers, traction control bypasses and now shift boots!

If anybody's interested I stuff, send me a PM

Cheers!

So as I mentioned in some earlier posts, not too much going on with my own car lately. I did head out early this morning a make a couple photographs in the fog. I haven't taken a full car shot in a while so you may notice some changes. The side-skirts, rear aprons, and fender badges were added. I really like the way they complete the black/white contrast of the car.

I think it would look good with a second polarization on the windshield.

Haha, I've officially given up on the Polorizor. I've learned to live with the reflections since that is what I see when I looked through the lens. Too much work involved blending images together and breaking out a tripod in this location anyway. I'm basically standing in a foot of water, lol (it was an old boat launch)

Haha. I agree that the reflections aren't really a big deal. But when I compare my before and after I always like the fully polarized ones more.

PS. I shoot mine hand held and have Photoshop do all the work. There is literally no manual aligning or blending done at all.

They are replicas in fiberglass. In theory, the real ones would be nice but not for the beating they will take during the winter. I'd rather run replicas and break them each year than purchasing the real skirts and have to take them off each winter. It's the nature of the north east
