Looks really good i really like the headlight idea. I'm going to have to do that to the wife's Avenger. It's all blacked out as well no chrome on it that would totally finish the front end.....

[cheers] thanks for the idea.

Looks real good! Who needs to spend $3095839458 on new headlights when you just pull apart and paint your old ones for the same look. Awesome. [36]

Not bad

Maybe it's just me but I like the chrome on my truck , but my bumpers are the full chrome not the gay plastic painted ends:D
I was almost thinking of getting some chrome bump strips for the side, this one doesn't have any:dontknow:

the headlights you can get the same thing made by dodge for about 600. same as what they called the euro light

no, had to cut the outer edge of the housing off, lense still holds onto housing just had to epoxy to get the water tight seal again
