Hello all. Finally figured out my way around this forum somewhat. I'm thankful to all who have educated me on how to do things on my car. Want to share the things I've done with my car to make it different to suit my taste, and see what others have done to make their cars suit their tastes as well.

Ok.......so I've seen all the mods to headlights on here and thought I would go one better. Instead of painting on the inside of the lights, I decided to paint on the outside. I first laid down a coat of gloss black, then a coat of flat black over it, which gives a subtle black satin finish, almost like vinyl. Did the headlights , tail lights and a-pillar.

Brushed steel shift knob....When I did this knob , I used a 5/8 coupler that fit perfectly over the shift arbor, and 5/8 threaded rod. (drilled & tapped the coupler to hold it all together).

As individual as you are. If it suits your tastes then all I can say is well done. The shift knob looks sharp.

If you use the link on the right in Photobucket and the tags here you can insert the pics in your post.

See, I couldn't go with a knob like that for our Solstice. My wife wouldn't be able to find any of the gears without the diagram on top. ; )
