Na, really no rubbing on turns at all. It's goin down the interstate doing 80 with two people in the car....every bump....Tires rub the wheel well 8(

nice ride man. you gunna wet sand the tint on the headlights down and buff them out? it would look killer all glossed out!

i see a lot of konig unkowns but never seen one on a vibe. not a bad choice! you gunna do anything on lowering the car? if you do, might have to make some adjustments in the wheel well. my 18's started rubbing the plastic on the wheel wells after i lowered so i had to cut some of it out where it was rubbin.

I dunno I may end up wet sanding em, but I know it won't be in the next few months. And I can't lower my ride That's th eprice you pay for 20in rims. My tires already rub the plastic.

hmmm...you may be on to something big here! You think that would mess with my ride quality?

other than how the bags make your ride feel, nothing out of control. it would be sick to be the (i think) first hellaflush vibe.

hey man this is a sick looking vibe..

have a question.. how the hell do you see at night with those tinted headlights lol

i had mine tinted, and prolly one stage lighter then yours... and i could justttt

like pushing it JUST see in the dark.

i have a 8k hid kit now. maybe that would help...

suggestions?

Well I have the aftermarket fogs which are really bright. I always got bright-lighted before I tinted them. Also I adjusted my headlights upward a little. AND I sanded in the middle where most of the light comes out, so it's not as dark in the center of the headlight. As for hid kits, I'm useless.lol I know nothing

Posted: Wed Mar 31, 2010 9:30 am
by Mariachi
well... with the HID's, i can help out with that. they should actually be bright enough to make their way through the tinting. you are running the dual filament bulbs right? I have the 6k bulbs and they are bright as hell!

Hey man i love your car! I'm going to do a few mods to my own. You can see below what my vibe used to look like (chrome rims are gone now). Im thinking of buying the Konig illusions(black with red accent. So i want to get a gloss black spray paint and paint my billet. I also want to smoke my headlights the way you did. I don't want them that dark though and was wondering if you wet sand them will it make them lighter?

I'm in love with your hood boss! And If you wet sand them it WILL make them lighter. And the billet should look pretty fly in black.

I was wondering where you got that front lip? It looks nice and its not tacky. Exactly what I've been looking for.

Posted: Wed Aug 18, 2010 3:56 pm
by bassrocker032
Hey psycho, I just painted the black trim around my gauge cluster and I decided on the two right smaller pods to paint the inside white as well and to my extreme surprise, the lighting is exactly the same as if it was left black like the two larger pods of the gauge cluster. Blew my mind. I just finished btw. I should have pics up tomorrow, although if you want to see what it looks like just look at yours and imagine the two small pods white on the inside, lol.

I meant to ask where did you get your seat covers? I'm planning on going with white and black racing seats anyways but I just wanted to know so I can get them to hold me over until I save up.

Also on your interior, did you manage to get any shine through on the a/c cluster. I saw where you removed the foam on the inside but I didn't know if it had any effect or anything.

eBay! only $50 for all the covers and 5 headrest covers. Also comes with the steering wheel cover and two seatbelt shoulder pads.

Check my seat covers out here!

Negative Sky Captain. I got no light thru it. At night you may BARELY see some, but it's definitely no help. So Now I gotta get decals cut to show the control settings

by bassrocker032
Damn, guess I got lucky leaving mine stock gray. Where do you get stuff like that done? The decals I mean.

Hey psycho, I need help and it can come in the form of adding a pic to your garage. I tinted my front headlights with the exact same stuff you did, but the question is, is how dark are your headlights? Because right now i'm WAY WAY WAY below the legal limit. I'm having to rock the one fog light (since a ground hog decided I didn't need the other one after I hit him) just to have a chance at seeing the road. I plan on wet sanding the **** out of them either tomorrow or the next day and buffing it to make it lighter, even, and all around a better looking job but I was wondering how yours looked. I might just prevent night driving for a while, lol. After wet sanding and the addition of halogen bulbs, I should be back to very bright while still having the dark tint look but just wondering.

Yeah sure here ya go!

Here's the passenger one AFTER being redone. I went too dark as well.


Right now I'm in the process of removing the tint completely because when I redid it, I went halfa$$ and it looks blotchy when they're on. So as you can see in thhis pic...the driver side is bald in the middle. I just wetsand on it every couple days or so. Doin more today


And people...please excuse the bugs


Posted: Wed Aug 25, 2010 9:58 pm
by A Psycho Martyr
i did them lighter in the middle and darker toward the edges. Came out really nice but I'm ready for it to be done right. When you sand them, don't make the same mistake I did. Male sure you completely remove ALL the tint.
