Unfortunately, I did. When I add plastiDip, I only do it to see what it looks like and half the time and end up just keeping it on there till I can afford getting quality parts.

I have talked to several shops around my area (St. Louis) but none of them will add tint to my tail lights for an extra cost. I don't want to try and do it myself, cause I have never done it before and honestly would be too nervous on messing it up and wasting money.

after a lot of debate on drilling holes into my bumper, I finally decided to get rid of the license plate bracket. also, the plasti dip on the front emblem got scratched from my daughter trying to "fix" my car with a screwdriver, so I need to re-dip it. Deciding if I want to do black again or do white since it will blend in with the bar.

found a decent spot for some pictures during lunch today. all taken from my phone. I think they turned out alright. Next plans are to get some tint and get it lowered. Tires and wheels will come way later.

Looking good! I think that black headlights would look really good on your car. Combine that with the black wheels, tint, and black-out taillights, and it'd look very Stormtrooper-y!

Thank you!

I definitely need to find some. I'm honestly scared to try and do it myself. Just haven't had the time lately and the priority on those arent very high.

Painting your headlights is super easy. There is an awesome how-to thread on it and it'll be a fun afternoon project.

Love the white cobalts, so clean! and a sedan too. Nice work man

PS. this reminds me I need to remove that ugly front plate mount from mine too. It's so much cleaner without it.

Thanks! trying to make it my own, but I got kids. they take up most of my money.

honestly, I was scared to take the front bracket off because I had to drill it to get it out, but it does look so much better! Eventually I will go to a body shop and get the holes covered up.

Are we? Within the next couple weeks I'm trying to decide if I want to buy new shocks/struts and lowering springs or tint the windows, get new headlights, and wind deflectors. So that should set us apart a little! Plus, I have been debating on getting my hood, roof, and trunk painted black. Trying to be different! cant have someone looking like me!
