    Note: in my area the SKU is 039923133243. If you go to the PVC/Plumbing section, just look for "schedule 40 flush bushing", in the appropiate size. They were only 68 each.

    Hopefully it stops raining soon, so i can knock this out this weekend

    Koji for Governor!

    Oh and could you specify what brands to get? I'm looking at HomeDepot.com right now to research because I'll be getting the sealant and paint from there whenever I'm ready. I'm just not sure which one to get because there are so damn many. Just tell me what brands and I'll buy! I put myself in the professionals' hands. Thanks all.

    Just a note - if you don't do the PVC section, then you haven't done the "Koji" mod! The "headlight mod," which is just painting the bezel and usually reinstalling the orange cover, has been around for a while. The only time I've seen the orange cover left off is when no painting is done. The pioneering step is the PVC.



    I just sold these to someone for a nominal fee in return for their stockers. I'm going to mod those, too, but with my own twist. It will be henceforth be called the "Sonic headlight mod."

    I am going to add pieces to both the blinker AND parking light area. Note, this will be difficult since one of Koji's pictures shows that a little of the headlight area "intrudes" on the parking light area. A little sanding/grinding of the PVC will be required.

    Also, a twist on the paint scheme will arise. The bezel will be painted graphite (as my pic above). The PVC pieces will be painted silver (not chrome, more dull like the WRX radio trim) on the outside, but chrome/reflective on the inside.

    Stay tuned, sports fans........

    yeah, me too

    Turns out that trying to get a piece of PVC to fit there is a HUGE PITA. Unlike the blinker area, the parking light area is not a nice SAE-sized circle. And I think you need some sort of CNC machine to grind down the one side.

    And paint people lie - all those cans with chrome caps are just freakin' silver. You don't want to know how many I bought only to find "yep, that's silver, too."

    I did paint the whole Koji piece silver and the rest of the bezel graphite, but it doesn't strike you as that much different than my pic above.

    Do you need to use high temp paint, or would some black glossy enamel work ok?

    No, you don't need to use high temp paint. Many people have used nothing more heat resistant than Flat black krylon. If you take a real good look at the headlights, you'll see that the frame part that you're painting isn't even the same piece as what is surrounding the main bulb where most of the heat is.
