    Body color headlights on 1G RT/TT

    Thanks to a deer taking out my hood, headlights and snake eyes along with a few dents on the fenders, I will be re-painting my 91 Stealth RT/TT. The hood(Cianci VIctory), bumper and fenders at a minimum will be painted. May just spray the entire car.

    Anyway, I don't like the black headlights with the blue hood. I have seen 1G Stealths with body color headlights, but it still looks a bit weird with the snakeyes.

    I have also seen one or two with body color headlights along with the black part of the snake eye painted body color. I'm thinking this is my best option at this point but I wondered what other options there might be.

    Would look like this with black headlights:



    Painted headlights, stock snake eyes:




    Painted headlights and snake eyes but without the stripes and that crap on the fenders:

    I don't like it when they're painted the body color. I prefer them to be black. However, if you're going to do it I think that painting the headlight and snake eyes the body color is the way to go.

    It looks too much like an ES when you paint them body color.

    I'm not sure what it is, but there's just something about those 2 black spots just sitting there. Some sort of paint scheme to blend them in a bit better might work for me
