    two light questions ...

    - does anyone have pictures of a white TA with smoked side markers? i'm debating doing mine and am sitting on the fence with it

    - i've seen various ways to change the color of your fog lights, whats the most cost effective, long lasting way to do it and still have good results? i've heard bulbs, plexi glass, ect

    - are there any tricks to doing the headlights? has anyone painted where the headlights sit?

    i decided to take care of all of my lights this weekend ... new headlights (if i can find them in the garage!), fixing my front markers (they're two different colors? wtf?), want to do yellow fogs and possibly doing my side markers and just want to see how people are doing it.

    probably the reason your marker lights are different colors is because one is amber and one is natural amber. . . i believe sylvania's website and the parts stores computers say our cars are suppose to be just amber, which im about 90% sure is the darker of the two. im sure your were gonna just change both bulbs, but i just want to give ya this fyi if ya didnt know haha

    as for fogs, id go with the silverstars or the pilot xenons. Ive had the pilots for over a year and love em. Theyre also about half the price of the silverstars.

    ive blacked out my trucks markers with some clear coat and darkening agent, scuffed the lenses up with fine steel wool ,then slowly start building up to what shade you want.think it would tie in nicely with your color scheme.and as far as the fogs go you can get anodized high heat paint and itll do it for cheap and look good.
