Just got my 2004 nighthawk black pearl type-s yesterday. I wanted to go with the JDM look, so I figured I'd get limo tint, black wheels, and I wanted black headlights and taillights.

Where can I buy black headlights and taillights? :confused:



Sorry, I'm new :D

You have a few options for the headlights:

-Smoked Headlights (same method as tails, use vinyl or transparent tape) however that isn't that great because of decreased light output and legality
-Projector Halos (a headlight that you buy)
-JDM Headlights (ditto, but you need to adjust the beams)
-DIY Headlights ( http://performance.clubrsx.com/headlights.html )


Smoked Tails:
Use vinyl or paint it.


Fuzzielittlepanda- That'd look good without the emblem, and the wing.

you know those silica gel packets that come in bags, and some food stuff? Throw one of them in there overnight for an entire weekend. It's job is to absorb oxygen and moisture. It works wonders. :thumbsup:

Whats limo tint? Really really dark?
Limo Tint is the same tint they use on limos, have you ever tried to look into a limo. Yeah its dark as hell. Where I am from thier is no tinting regulations. We can tint the car all the way around limo style. Its pretty cool

i just did it...however i found japanese crackers with a packet of ??caustic?? lime as an active ingredient and says waterproof on the front (i think that was the name)...u think that would be good?

also do u guys think that i could just leave it in there indefinitely or just overnight?...i just wanna be protected against future fogs cuz it already stained it lightly...

just pull a bulb out and push it in the hole with some string. Put the rubber cap back on. Leave for the weekend, and take it out, replace bulb and rubber cap. No more condensation.
