I want to do something with the headlights, i have the blackouts on there as of now, but i would like to put some nice bulbs in the front.

My question is if anyone thinks it would be a bad idea to paint the headlights like you would paint the tail lights, with my own design...etc. Instead of going through buying all that stuff from GTS wouldnt it be easier to cut our designs and paint the headlights from there?

Or give me something you think would be better

That might be a big no no with the cops where you live, not sure, GTS makes a clear headlight cover, maybe it's be better to use that instead and paint it with your design on it.

Cops around here arent a big problem, im just wondering if the paint would stay on or look crappy

Thanks though

aren't the headlights on the 91-94's textured? that might make the paint run a little, if you do this be sure to use more very light coats rather than a medium or heavy coat of paint.

good luck.

I am going to do something like this, with clear GTS covers instead of directly on the lights. Only problem is the covers have been on backorder for 3 months...
Apparently GTS has taken upon new ownership, and the production lines have been down for a couple months. They are supposed to be back online soon...

I have 2 sets of 91-94 Clears. One never opened and the other set used (But Stripped)$20 for the used ones plus shipping and $35 for the new ones + Shipping. the used set was only on for 3 weeks. I didn't like the look.

isaacs93cavi, I may be interested in that New set you have. I will call autoaccessory.com tomorrow and see if I can cancel my order with them. If I can, I will definately buy that new set of clears from you!
