You can't really tell on the third pic but they are sooo much more clear (we buffed them first) and as you look at them from different angles they sparkle so blue!

I don't mind the look but i think (actually I know) you went about it completely the wrong way and not to mention copletely illegal.

First off you could have attain the same blue effect by buying som ehiper white bulbs that gives off a blue tint for the head and the side corners seeing how they are both clear already.

Secondly you obviously did not cleaned the headlights enough. It is recommened (actually not just recommended) that you run it through with some 400 grit sand paper thoroughly, than run through some 800 grit, than 1200 grit, than 1600 grit than bugg the headlights smooth. And after that to apply a clearcoat. Your headlight repainted loooks extrmemly cloudy from the obvious application of too much clearcoat and not enough sanding work to make them truly clean.

Oh and not to mention blue painted lights are considered illegal in all 50 states of the Union since no vehicle except emergency or police may have blue tinted lights on their exterior. The only exceptions are projector headlights with the bluish tint but must not emit any blue color. I think the coppers will pull you over the first time they notice that. Just a warning to you.

Alright, first of all the pearl did not change the color of my lights in any way and I didnt plan on that either.. and Like I said they are ALOT more clear than it looks on the picture.. All the pearl did was add a blue sparkle to the covers, that is it..

The later pictures look good and unique. However, it is still illegal man! I am 100% sure!

Anyway, I like the whole piece front. It looks clean. However, I did the same thing with my shotgun front and it cracked due to too many dips aruond my area.

Looks great so far & keep it up!!!!:D

Yeah! I guess so. There are a lot of fix up cars around LA with attitudes. Especially, the Movie "Fast and the Furious" came out last year, a lot more fix up Hondas. That's why I stop driving MY MX6 lately.:(

Back to the this thread, I like the headlight color, since I did mine with some headlight sticker to make my headlight glossy blue, but it doesn't look as good as this.
