First post in the forum.
Just bought my new girl on friday.
Have a header orange 2014.
Looking to black out my grill kind of like the look better than chrome.
Also wanting to know if there are any headlights/fogs with orange *accents ont he lights.
Not sure exactly what is legal or not.
In San Diego, CA.
Thanks for any help and easy tips would be awesome!

What fuel door did you go with?
Straight black or the black chrome combo?

Legality is main thing im looking for.

I'm just gonna paint it. I know I wont go back. Also got a new chrome Hurst short stick gonna paint it with black chrome paint with a black shifter ball on top. ditching the silver stripes for dark gray. Should have it all done by end of next week.

found 1. I actually got the tint for the taillights but changed my mind. It is illegal but most people don't have any issues with the cops. It was just going to be too dark for me.

Ph wow, what did you use for the side markers?
Ya, that is my big thing.
I want to know if I am going to get pulled over for half of my upgrades.

What kind of paint are you thinking about for the grill?

That's what Im going for right there! Thought about buying one but figured hey gotta paint some stuff anyway, so why not try it. If I don't like the way it turns out then I will just buy one. My side markers are tint, from big worm graphix. when the lights are on half of each light is visible and the red or yellow shines through. wheres ChallengeRRR?! This can be a San Diego party.

Sorry no photos of it but I also blacked out my grille with plastidip and it has held up well through road trips, car washes and this record setting winter season. Plastidip is cheap too just run to Menards and get a can.
