    I got some tint sprayed today, I went a little too heavy and they came out darker than I was wanting. The lights are more or less pitch black, they came out alright though. Quite a few dust nibs but nothing major, going to finish them up tomorrow.

    I'll chime in on the LMC harness as well, as I have one on my 98 and haven't had any issues. I think I've had it for almost 2 years now.

    Finished up the lights today, got them sanded, cleared, sanded again then polished. They came out great.[​IMG]

    There is only one problem, the VHT turned the orange light to red.[​IMG]

    I swapped out the 194 in the corners for some LED's I used in the interior. I need to swap the 1157A's out for some regular 1157's then I'll be good.[​IMG]

    The light output is pretty dim as expected. I'd put tint film on them if I did it again, would have achieved the same look and been easier.

    Thank you and new center caps are on the list.
    I'm torn between getting black logo caps & blacking out the bowtie or keeping the bowtie gold and getting gold logo caps.

    I think a black bowtie would look nice, or a colormatched one would look good too.

    Well, the turn signals still aren't a passable color after putting new bulbs in, with normal 1157's the light was still red. When I put some white 1157 LED's the light was teal around the edges and red in the middle. So the black turn signals are a no go, have to swap them out again.

    I wanted to color match the mirrors, wouldn't be hard to do the bowtie as well, you got me thinking.
