I just turned 1,000 miles and decided it was enought time to start modding besides getting the tint doen the first day i got it. I painted the inside headlights black, tinted the rear taillights only the red section, left the white. I tinted the rear reflectors. I painted the front emblem. I lowered her with the Eibach Pro-kit and threw in a K&N drop in for now. I did paint the rear emblem that nite but didnt take pictures yet.

I really like the head and tail lights. I asked the guy who did my tint if he could do the tails and he said it would be to hard did you do them yourself or did the tint co?

Thanks guys, I had to take the headlights out and take them apart to paint the insides and then put the headlights back together and reseal them. The rears i just taped off and painted with tint spray. I did have some help from some of my Honda buddies who have done this to their cars :).
Also i did add a coat of clear on the taillights and the third brake light after they were painted.

goood to hear they were easy to get open. I was going to do this right away but have had trouble with getting other vehicles headlights open and didn't want to ruin the brand new headlights.

Nice job, totally dig the headlights! Even the tail reflectors came out nicer than I had expected and the taillights are a nice touch with keeping the reverse clean and clear. Thumbs up!

I really want to do my headlights like that. Did it succesfully on one car before, but just not sure I can bring myself to risk doing it on this one with it being brand new and the housings being so damn expensive. CRAP.

I notice a lot of people neglected to do the third brake light when they nightshade their taillights. I think it's crucial!!

Also I like how you did your brake lights with the bottom cut out. Looks good!! Might have to try that with mine.
