Im not much of a fan of trim. it looks good on some trucks, but for me... not on cars.
plus, If someones gonna hit my car with stuff .... the trim aint really gonna matter. even if it dents or scratches... I can fix that in less than an hour, but with the 5 vehicles ive owned... ive never been hit with anything. but it is what it is... just a preference. you like it on yours and I don't like it on mine.

anyways.... my next plan is to hopefully tint them sometime soon, but may be as late as Christmas or even tax return time. got some other obligations. maybe tax return, ill even look into new tires and wheels.

Decided to try and plasti dip some eyelids on her. Deciding wether or not to get vinyl ones. opinions? Im not too sure myself but like that its different. I got to trim the right one a little cause I think its a little too rounded compared to the left side.

Next project will be blacking out the tail lights or possibly blacking out my hood completely.

Before:


After:

removed the eyelids. I felt like it was taking a bit of my distance away on visibility. I will just have to buy some new headlights.

So, until my father (who is a police officer) says anything about my tail lights being too dark... they will stay until I can find some dark smoke LED ones.

Lol tell him to arrest you if he doesn't like it!! I actually like the eyelids on there. I think it makes it look clean

Its only 3 layers of plasti dip and then 3 layers of glossifier. Maybe it just looks dark cause it was a cloudy day cause I can see the lights when their on.
