Nice and clean. Steelies FTW did you paint your headlights yourself?
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.

gahh makes me miss my 5% tint sooo bad :( nice car

Thanks man. I just wish I could find like a Vent Mount for the Ipod Nano, instead of using suction cups to hold the cord and sit the ipod on it.
i used a dremel and cut out a hole in the bottom of the cubby hole to the left of the steering wheel and mounted the ipod cord in hte bottom of it, i love it

I did that, yesterday before getting the suction cup idea, but those actually ruined the paint underneath them, I'm now sanding and repainting right now.

The problem with the cubby hole is that it is too far away for me to mess with it while driving.

No, if you take a small flat head screw driver, you can pop off the silver top part, then just pop out the gear selection thingy and then you can paint it. I took off the leather around the knob cause it wasn't flowing with the yellow thread on the boot. and there isn't a way to get the thread on the knob and get that leather back on there right...
