      its a pretty simple process really.
      its just masking the inner circle in line with the clear section... then i used some spray tint (vht niteshades) i sprayed them off the car. but its essential that you spray them together to ensure the correct shade... but after they get a few coats, i then let them dry and wet sanded them down to 2000grit. after that polish away....

      it's a simple mod, just time consuming. I also did the lower side markers near the front wheel well.

      they look nearly OEM. in fact my wife actually LIKES the look. i decided to try it since i have the euro .:R32 tails that are tinted and have the amber turn signals as well... so its kind of a "his and hers" idea

      today i decided to fix a little crack in the windscreen... actually quite easy! i used the new 3m kit you can pick up... its got a bridge with suction cups, and some nice window resin filler. with a threaded plunger. it was a simple VERY professional fix

      Pretty stoked! Got a Kenwood DNX7190HD nav system installed this weekend. Bought the stuff from Crutchfield and was pretty tempted to do it myself. But, ended up taking it to a local shop for install. They did a good job and did it, I'm sure, quicker than it would've taken me.

      Now I'm thinking I need a rear-view camera. Seems like I need one of these now that I have a pretty screen in the dash.

      Mic is at the top left of the photo. Sirius antenna is on the dash...right corner of the windshield. iPod is in the glove box.


      Been having fun with the new toy. Changed the startup screen to below but might be changing it again.
