just finished converting my headlamp bezels from chrome to black. Went a little faster than i had hoped. Tonights mod brought to you by easy off oven cleaner and a heat gun!

Nice pics. I just did the same thing last month. I had mines intend to match the car though.
And I just did mine 6 months ago and painted too. (I think Rob meant painted instead of "intend", could be wrong)

I used easy off as well when I did my retrofit, worked great! I was very happy with the nice gloss black beneath the chrome bezel.

i ordered the DiNoc CF wrap for the windshield and tulip panel from ASAP almost a month ago. still waiting for it to get to me. i was told a week ago that it was being shipped the next day. That and wheels are all that's left till i'm happy with the exterior.

I hate to say it because you already closed up the lights, but I would have went with a projector retrofit in there. That is one of the best mods I've done because visibility is much greater at night.

As asked earlier, here is the best shot I have showing the retrofit and black housings.

Crap. I'm torn. I've been keeping things as stock as possible with a few "tweaks" but I think that looks kinda good.

Damn this forum. lol

thought about it. but thats money that i would rather be saving toward a big wheel upgrade in my turbo. that and wheels are next in line. maybe i can convince TS to build me one of those fancy boost gauges also if i pay for parts and labor. *hint hint*

Wished I had known about the Easy Off when I did mine! That plastic chrome crap is a pain to scuff up for painting.
