I have some money leftover (don't ask me how :D ) and I was thinking of getting my headlight, fog, and rear painted. Now the question is should I get chrome black or flat black? Anybody done this before on a white (DWP) IS? I think it will go well with my rmm front lip....also, who was it that can do this in socal?

edit: Also want to do the same thing to my clear sidemarker too...

TIA

So those are the dark JDM rears? I get confused with the terms black chrome vs dark, since they all look the same to me :eek:

- from what I understand:

JDM black chrome (darker then US black chrome) the ones I have
JDM flat black
US black chrome

my first choice is to go all JDM flat black look...but after some search i found out it's hard to paint the JDM flat black look for the taillights and i heard that it cost around $500 for the JDM flat black.. :eek:

so probably i will have to go with my second choice, which is JDM chrome black for all fogs, headlight, and taillights since JDM chrome black is darker than the US chrome black...
