I'm FFVulcanPowah, and I approve this car's appearance.

The blacked out tails and headlights look AWESOME on the tan car. Pimped out "old people" color cars are freaking sweet.

I'm not a fan of the front headlights. The paint looks cloudy! Did you use any clear coat?

They also look a little too dark, esp the turn signals...

Ohhh nice deal on the rear discs B) Can't beat free parts.

Yup Arizona Beige is the color. When it's all shined up, it's amazing how much the metallic *pops* on that color...just like on Dark Shadow Gray.

That is a pretty neat colour, esp with the tinted windows... Like a desert sunrise...

Lets see the color is hot, the tint looks good, and those tails are sharp. But those headlamps have got to go. Might look better with centennials instead.

Honest question -

Why nightshade safety items (headlamps/tail lamps)?
[/b]
I always wondered that too! lol

Headlights look eh... tailights looks nice, and I'm jealous of the rear discs. nice paint on the calipers

Tinting isn't that big of a deal, so long as you don't go overboard and use too much VHT... I think most people over do it because they don't get an even spray on the first go... Just takes practise I guess. If I ever wanted to VHT my lights, I'd only do a single coat...
