Re: AM Parts arrived & Installed

Thanks everyone. The strut brace makes such a difference in handling. It's awesome. I thought the tint on the lights would be too dark, but it's perfect in daylight. I used the VHT NITE-SHADES

Re: AM Parts arrived & Installed

How do you like the strut bar? Do you feel a noticeable difference at all? I'm debating getting one as well.

Those lights look awesome, by the way! What did you use to tint them?

I love the strut bar. I wish I had got it 2 years ago. The difference is really noticeable. It's a must add part

I used VHT Nite-Shades on the tail lights.

Damn, looks like I need to get one then! And awesome, VHT Nite-Shades is what I was thinking of using as well - I was a little skeptic, but it ended up looking great. How many coats did you use?

I used 4 coats total. 2 tack coats and then I did 2 coats closer to get a smoother look. Make sure you clean you lenses really good. I used just alcohol and then wiped it off with a tac cloth to get and lint off.
