great looking car. Im with you on the attention to detail, although mine is entirely black. great touch with the full gloss grill. Its super clean so far, dont over do it
Ugh. I'm conflicted. I keep vascillating between both options. Part of me says the blackout will go better with the black and yellow theme, then the other part of me agrees entirely with ciomas's logic - that the headlights are one of the few parts of the car that is almost inseparably identifiable with the car.

I'm ever so slightly leaning toward no blackout.

I know. I know. I wish i could see a 50/50 shot of blackout and no blackout on my Dakar Yellow. That would instantly resolve all debate and ambiguity.

Btw blackout is nice.. but I'd say no black out
I never thought my thread would ever have pictures of girls draped over cars in it. Looks like I was wrong. But please do tell persian54 what model this is.

I love your mods and can't wait to see what else you have in store!

Thanks Larry. I was hoping for a resounding answer in one direction or another, which would help put my amibiguity to rest. Instead, I got answers in every which direction... and that leaves me even more ambiguous. haha.

if you're talking about OSS like headlights/angel eyes... then yes i agree entirely. if you're talking about blackouts... i can't say.
