Ok so my Heritage grille got installed so I thought I may as well fix my headlights.

During:



After:



There was a lot of problems that arose from trying to fix the headlights but luckily, I had friends from school help me out.

So I was at Carmike watching a movie and when I came out, I saw this!



Sure it's a dodge but it still looks good. I just might end up going with similar color wheels. I think the machined face TSW Nurburgrings are the ones for me. I found a couple of pics of them on a yellow camaro.

So if anybody wants to give me some advice, feel free to let me know.

As far as future mods, I want some hash marks and definitely some TSW Nurburgrings.

Thanks! I'm thinking about going with some CF vinyl for the hash marks. The retrofit was a pita but at least it looks like the way I want it!

For some reason I had a feeling that was the case. No worries.

It seems I keep getting yellow cars that park next to me every time I go to the movies!

Just an update, I bought some 20x9 and 20x10 Factory Reproductions Polished Replica ZL1 rims, some side gills and the lightest tint (50%) from Big Worm Graphix. I'll add a couple of photos of the cars I ended up parking next to today at school. I like to call it "The American Trinity".

I've decided to ditch the projector retrofit and the oracle halos because of the MANY problems I was having. I contacted SinisSick and I was able to get some new OEM RS headlight for an EXTREMELY good price. Since I still wanted the RGB halos, I got the Night Owl kit with an RGB strip for my grille. The install was about 3 times shorter than for my retrofit. It could've been faster but things tend to be slow when installing car parts with friends.

I've only got one picture of the finished product and that's because my friend took it. I'll probably take one tonight.

Thanks, guys!

Currently I'm torn between getting an SS bumper or a ZL1 bumper. The SS bumper would be getting T4 bumper ports and splitter with a Street Scene lower grille + ports. The ZL1 probably won't have any fog lights since I'll probably remove the area and make it ports.

What do you guys think?
