Great Job on the lights,
i think while yu work on painting the bumper, try also painting the top black,if yu have extra paint & time ^.^ [my opinion] it will look amazing.

The only reason i did mine flat black was, I'd thought yo really couldnt tell if it was glossy or not if it was in the housing. Maybe you can but i am not too fond of Glossy paint, except the body. But i assume it looks good with gloss on it??

Nice blacked effect. I also like that Black masking effect you've done with the lower grill. It makes me wanna reweigh my options converting my '00 SLE's front to 1.5. I think a rubber based paint like Herculiner would work well on that. Two coats should suffice.

Thanks, and yeah i have to refinish the lower part it started to chip a lot. Hmm I always like the 99-00' better than 01+. But whatever you like just do it and make it look nice
