Yeah, I did, but I need to get either New Lenses or new lights, the lenses are fading and the Clear Coat is peeling... I'm not quite sure how to sand them down but keep the clarity.

As for the steelies, I'm thinking of once I get a new one for the rear, I'm gonna try to find a center cap to put on there and some chrome lug nuts and then paint a yellow pin stripe around the edge.

Oh, for those still rockin the steelies, try scrubbing them down real good during a wash, then after they are dry get some tire foam stuff and spray on the entire wheel and tire, then take a rag and wipe down... makes the tires look new and the steelie shine... And the shine lasted me about two weeks if I kept it out of the puddles and potholes.

Yeah X2 on wiping them down to make sure you dont get tire shine on your car after you clean it.

Do you mean that you head light plastic is getting hazy? If that the problem its just the oxidation, you can use rubbing compound on the plastic and it will clear up the haziness if your cheap like me you can always use toothpaste it works just as good lol

no, the clear coat that comes on the stock lights is starting to peel away slowly, almost looks like the 90s chevys that the hood's clear coat has gone bad. Also when the lights are on, they are pitted bad from the 76k miles in three short years. Almost like they were hit with sand. They don't look that bad in pics but up close they are pretty ugly looking.
