Thinking of buying a black smoke Flyeyes kit for my headlights, basically tints them.

Could someone photoshop what it would look like?

example- (Hope you don't mind me using this picture!)

its not, but the flyeyes kit ensures the light passes through etc so thats legal, spraying isn't.

What do you think? i reckon it looks pretty good, should do it from an angle with the whole car in as well really to get the best results. hmm

D'ya know what i think looks the best on Zs's... colour coding the black plastic bits on the bumpers and bumpstrips :)

Yeah, I'm unsure as to whether to colour code, or to gloss black paint them, as they are actually a nice touch once you get used to them!
Not like the older cars with whole bumpers with the strips. its a nice strip in a way lol

Gimp it? ;)

I've got yellow fogs, looks real nice on the Si.
Fogs are tinted yellow, with true yellow bulbs - £15ea. from Japan xD
But it had to be done :P
Pics soon!

Yeah very good, helps when it's snowing and raining because yellow sees through that, whereas normal light can't
And my ice white headlamps defineately can't lol
