Warning: If you are thinking of doing this mod, read a horror story first- http://www.caliberforumz.com/showthread.php?t=24589

NOTE:
STEP-BY-STEP BEGINS ON PAGE 3 OF THIS THREAD :)

I did it! Got the bumper off, took out the headlights and painted the housing black. IMO I think it looks way better than the eBay "projectors" do, and it cost way less as well. It looks stunning, very smooth and clean from what I've been told by some people. I've got complete how to and DIY pictures if you would like.

I decided to leave the chrome rings and the > shape by the turn signal just so they wouldn't look so dull. They reflect the same amount of light as before and the car is perfectly visible in the dark.


Here's the before pic, I'm sure I don't actually need to post this pic...


And here's the after :D, it's nice to know this is the only car out there that has these... for now i guess.

also ever since ive gotten my caliber ive wanted to take the orange reflectors off i think they just dont look right on there...
Those are your front side markers. They legally have to be amber. Any other color will get you a ticket. Why do you think all cars have the same colors in the same place?:rolleyes:

It looks like he still has the orange marker lights so they still should be amber from the side, just the reflectors were removed.:wow: I think it looks great.

One must pay attention. The pictures are of nbrown's mod, smc was the one that wanted to remove the marker ambers. The reflectors and amber remain the same as original on the mod.:str:
