    Wow that is an amazing example of how to do it. What did the paint job set you back? Where did you get the demon eyes, that is a nice addition.

    haha, ya'll probably didnt think I'd do it and to be honest, I was forced into it by bambi. I'm into it for approx 15K between paint, wheels, hood, grille and suspension. But wow, I liked the silver but I love this black out. everything is black, just the way I wanted. the headlight casings not only have the demon eyes installed (courtesy of Oracle/AAC lighting concepts) but they also painted the chrome inside the headlight flat black. the Demon eyes are wired to a constant power source and come with a 4 button remote and will do a variety of light fades/patterns as well a different levels of brightness. Glad you all like the Darth Maul look

    my favourite is the inside of the lights blacked out. I have always loved that look but its one of the few things I am too chicken to attempt.

    SWEEET car!

    headlights were done by the same company who did Justin Beibers. Advance Automotive concepts or AAC, somehow affiliated with Halo. Some of the people who emailed me had halo emails and others had AAC.
    I do not recommend them as they have no quality control and their warranty is limited to only partially making things right.
