    The LEDs and Strobes. I have a new head unit that is video-capable. Going to detail the trunk and put in some video monitors; same with the head rests and sun visors.

    Disagree. The orange lenses look hideous with the rest of the car's color. But thanks for the suggestion.

    I agree with hummer about the tail lights.... you could either red-out the signal, or get the clear signal version.

    I personally would have picked these tail lights, out of the 2 "ricer" styles.

    Hey Salty Dog could you take a picture of the tail lights with the lights on? Also another shot with the turn signal on.
    Been wondering about those for a long time now.

    Well my plan was to red the outside out. Which I think would look good. Theoretically.

    Yeah bro, don't change a thing, you've managed to keep it looking clean all these years, major props man.
    We were just giving you a hard time anyway :D

    Hmmm, I don't think I've ever seen that done. Perhaps it would look good! Either style should work with a redout.

    It's not how many mods you have or what the mods are. It's all in the execution. Does everything flow? Do the mods complement each other. It requires some artistry and artistic flair.:cool:

    Some dudes, the Fast and Furious wannabes, put on a big-assed park bench wing, intake, and loud fart can and think "woo hoo I have a hot car." but the combination of all their mods don't go together and the car ends up looking like schitt.:eek:

    Some people may not like the Altezzas but I happen to think they look better than the OEM tails when the car is taken as a whole; it keeps the color consistent. I'd certainly never put on a set with bright red and chrome, but the smoked ones work. And more than a few car show judges have thought the same way. :)

    When modding, it is not what you do but how you do it and it is better to under do it than over do it.:D
