      I was tired of looking at my painted grille so I decided to take it apart and paint it black. After finishing it, I noticed it made the lowers look like dookie, so I popped those out and painted those too. I know they're fairly inexpensive, but I love the feeling of doing the work myself. Now the headlights look ****ty

      Anyway, enjoy. Comments and suggestions welcome. Other then putting a big wing on and letting it catch fire.

      You might wanna clear up those headlights, that just looks dangerous.

      Dude, I'm on it tomorrow. I did em once before but perhaps I didn't do good enough. I'm doing it up right this time though. Thanks for the thoughts. I am running blindfolded at night hahaha

      I can honestly say, those are the most horrible looking headlights I've ever seen.

      Grills look good though.

      And x2 on the textured rubs.

      LB's ftw!

      Haha door handles are off already and I'm working on blacking them and the mirrors out. And yeas, the mirrors are beyond having a haze. They look worse since I washed it yesterday. Thanks for the suggestions.

      Looks good, you don't need new headlights though, just restore these. Google it, there are tons of guides
