Re: ++ WHEN TIMES, CAR'S AND MUSIC WAS GREAT ++

Whatchutalkinbout, Wills? Times are still great, there's so many car shows around I have to pick and choose what one to go to! Autorama was the biggest one yet last year, hopefully I'll go to it in a restored Corsa this year. :neener:

Re: H4 conversion/ and yellow foglight paints. Questions.

Personally, I wouldn't paint the lights. The heat from the bulbs and weather extremes make it likely the paint will flake off, and you'll need to do it again. Easier way is to use a filter, which comes in a plastic film you apply to the headlamp glass. It's durable, and won't flake. One of my buddie...
