This was inspired by Mex's idea of painting the reflector itself amber. Link here: http://www.7thgencivic.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=195679

I'll let the pictures speak:




Here's what I used for the amber reflector:


And for the headlights:


It was such a nice day, so here are some of the other shots I took:

They were originally chrome TYC's, but I painted the outer plastic (with the exception of the reverse of course) red. I used Testor's Candy Apple Red for that; I outgrew the whole altezza-phase.

EDIT: TYC makes them in chrome, black, and red. There may be a CF version of them too, but I'm not sure.

looks cool, maybe you shouldn't have painted behind where the amber piece was going to go, for it to be more orange? I dunno, looks good though

The whole painting process was easy. I just wish I had some help re-sealing the headlights; They're slowly starting to fog up.
