This week I am having PureNick and Inspar8r paint my headlights, tails, and fogs. i have a black onyx 02 sport IS.

I was gonna do all black onyx on everything... but does anyone have any cool ideas i should try that they haven't seen, or just any ideas on other things i can do to my lights (bulbs or anything) while they are dissassembled?

(besides LED's)

Paint them dark red...then paint your calipers red....and then get red 19 inch rims lol...I think that might look cool. I have never seen one done before.

i think the projector retro fitting looks a little goofy for our car....however dual hid is really a dope idea....i was gonna hit up LCA about seeing if its possible to get a gaitling gun and xenon projector retro fit done on the same headlight....now THAT would be wild....but expensive...

hmmmmm.....post pics of your car when its blacked out...im heading down the same path...

you can try JDM'ing them....but painting the orange turn signal on them...im considering that to stand out a lil bit...

making your fogs clear? theres a DIY for that....requires some sand paper....

im trying to keep all the "secret/new" stuff for my own black onyx haha....

Just do projectors man


They are not too expensive to buy and get together (I have been pricing for another member)

^^you leaving the low beam HID in there?
i'm not really sure yet, i should have the housings i'm gonna be working on sometime next week hopefully. when i get them in i'll do some test fitting, but i have a feeling i'm going to put the bixenon projectors in place of the oem low beam HID reflectors. i just hope i can keep the auto-leveling w/the projectors.

Good luck, it all depends on the depth in the housings with the projectors :)

I talked with Justin about this a couple times

thanks, yeah i still have to make measurements but it looks like they've got plenty of room. i'll just have to come up w/a creative bezel/shroud so that it looks like it came from the factory that way.

Dark grey would look nice, almost a GGP, just darker.
