    has the guy already done your headlights, cause you have the oem smoked chrome ones, and those are really desireable, you could always pick up the regular chrome ones or trade someone for them and do the bhlm on them, that'd be helpin out another member i'm sure

    2 satoshi that grill, search for it and you will see
    3 paint the lower valance black, search
    4 research more on BHLM, I wasn't satisfied with my first so I found something I did like, now I'm going to do projectors soon.
    5 New front plate bumper perhaps??!! Or paint fog light holes?
