    is it wrong that I wanna rape your car? :shrug:

    seriously, your car is the reason I tell people with true blue to go with chrome rims. Very nice :nice:

    How much is the light output affected with them being that dar?

    Down here in SoCal, people have a hard enough time seeing the brake lights with no tinting... if I were to do that I'd probably be asking for some dumba$$ to destroy my rear bumper because he didn't see the bright lights of my brakes.

    You should be able to clean them up pretty good. I went with the 50% vinyl from autobadges.

    steeda rims :drool: :drool:

    i'd say the light output has been cut down to about 60% of the original brightness :doh:

    i think im going to see if i can find some kind of clear coat or somethin to make it a lil glossier. now that my car is gettin the s281 spoiler, the lights now look pitch black under the wing because it provides a lil shade for them. haha i dont know if this is good or bad yet....but heres a lil preview of what its gonna look like :D :D

    you can get the s281 wing off of speedworx.com for 179.99 :nice:

    BUT expect absolutely terrible fitment and quality with the s281 wing. my first wing was pitted and cracked and warped so bad, 6 body shops refused to touch it. so i argued with saleen for nearly 2 months to get the one i have now... its rough, but in the end i know i will love the look, so im stickin with the s281 wing.

    well actually, speedworx sells authentic saleen parts. i just recommended them because of their prices, and their customer service. hanley motorsports is also a good place to buy it from. :nice:

    i was just tryin to warn you a lil that the s281 wings arrive in pretty bad shape....the shop whos doin mine estimates over $500 :eek: but i'm tryin to talk him down a bit.

    the tail pipe has been fixed about a month ago. i tried the walmart static cling tint but it started peeling in the corners. not too bad for spending $3 at wally world though. i just decided to use the nite shades and it worked great
