    Thanks! I actually just finished my full chrome delete, other than the headlight housing.

    I am just North of Austin, but I go down to San Antonio every so often to visit friends and family.

    Looks good like that. I got big plans for the headlights that I haven't seen done yet but just waiting for some more over time money haha. I'm usually anti chrome but I think our color looks good with a little. Only thing I'm gonna Paint black is the grey in the fenders and side skirts. Was on the fence about taking off the top rails but after seeing yours I'm doing it for sure. What did you plug the holes with?

    So, I cut out some small cardboard disks, tied some fishing line through the middle, and after inserting them into the holes, put a layer of silicone on the cardboard, before pulling it up to meet the underside of the sheet metal. Then I dipped my finger in some water with a drop of dish soap, and smoothed it out, while keeping upward pressure on it.

    Once cured, I just put some pieces of matte black vinyl over it, until I can find a match for our white in vinyl. I wanted it reversible, but it is a bit of work.

    Yeah, I plan to do the morimoto rings, and paint the chrome housing black. But I am going to wait until I have the spare cash to buy a new set of headlights, in case I screw up the baking process.... lol

    I want to do some cob halos but am going to run an xk glow sequential switch back strip along the bottom. Plus Paint the housing black pearl or white . Not sure yet. Those lights are stupid expensive so I'm gonna have someone here in town do it because he has built a shit ton and does good work for pretty cheap.

    Nice! I have never seen the XKGlows, how do you plan to mount them? Mind PMing who is doing them? I doubt I could swing the logistics of having them done out of town, but still curious to see. Have seen people pay $600+, and I'm not about that life. :rofl:

    Syndicate auto-works . He's on Facebook. Really cool guy and good on price. I think he's in the 300 range or so. He can usually have them done in like a day or so depending on how much work you want to do. But if anything you can always stay with family for the weekend or something and have them done and mounted ya know. Look up the YouTube video for the xk glow sequential switch backs. I wanna say they glue on. Would look killer with the the way the bottom of the headlights are shaped.

    Too true. Will probably be awhile before I get to that, but will definitely keep it in mind.
