My first mod!

Ok, it's nothing special, I just replaced those obnoxious orange stock reflectors with some clears ones. It was easy to go the old ones off but a little tricky to get the new ones in, I know I did it wrong the first time because the bumper was dimpled in where the reflector was, ha ha.

I don't recall seeing clear ones on IB before on here. I got them so they'd match the headlights. I thought I wanted painted ones at first but the more I saw them the less I liked them, just looked unnatural as there were these random bulges on the sides of the bumper, kind of like a skin colored bandaid on your arm.

The next thing I might do is black out the kidney grills. Well keep the chrome around them but black out the vertical lines, if I can to match the black plastic in the intake below them.

Don't have the budget to get to carried away right now, and it's a lease so don't know if I want to get carried away with it either.
