Your wax job is so shiny, you can see your face on the reflection of the fender! LOL. Bulbs look cool.

you know that u can just paint ur existing bulbs silver... costs as much as a can of silver spray, or if u got some left over its free

this is what you do, painte verything silver and leave 4 small triangles orange, like so, u can even make them smaller





when u place the bulb inside and it blinks, it reflects off of the reflector and produces the same amount of light as a regular one. did this to my old car, worked fine for over a year till i sold the car.
