Should I change the thread name to "The Rally Mod"? "The Andrew Mod?"

That does look good with the white center. Personally when I did this I went with the all black look and tinted the lens.

I got a vinyl wrap beta version of this mod a couple of years back from Lagston. I think he decided it was too much of a pita to "productize" though.

Started doing it last year but when I realised cutting was needed and it was getting dark I said screw it, grabbed a beer and fired up the grill.

I'll probably eventually do it but for now mine are wrapped in red which means my reverse lights are red. I do have the pre facelift reverse as well though so no rush.

I have a set of prefacelift orange dot tails for sale if anyone wants a safety set. They were my backup set in case I screwed up, but I didn't need them.

Same goes for one prefacelift halogen headlight if you want to try your hand at a joey mod but don't want to risk screwing up your only headlights.

How much you want for all of it? I could use some practice.
