Had some thunder grey paint left over so thought id paint the speedo cluster
Image
Looks much better now
Image
Image
Had bought a ek9 style grill but seeng as it took so long to come i had already decided to paint the oem in gloss black,day later the ek9 style one had arrived..
Image
Both look decent i guess
Image
Image
Then decided to take off the rear bumper to paint the rear lip,still needs to be lacquered though
Image
While i was waiting for it to dry i thought ii'd test fit the coupe rear bumper..
Image
Image
Untill this happened..

So it was the time to do the ek9 style headlights..
seeing as i was going to split them open i thought id do a custom double bulb conversion for the usdm's as i didn't like them being so dull lol..but yeah some progress pics..
Split open
Image
Second hole made in cluster
Image
and in the housing too
Image
Masked up and primered..
Image
and done,painted them the same colour as the car,came out really well,also gave them a coat of lacquer to for a little shine..left the indicator section chrome as i have something else planned for that..
