      Honestly, no. With all that plastic, I think it would look extremely tacky. If you're set on doing those things, at least just cut out the headlight covers. IMO they look awful.

      we all go through that stage ;) if you really want that stuff id get the vent visors (window deflectors) and paint them body color and cut out the rest of it...thats just me though. i wanted headlight covers for the longest time but now see the errors of my ways ;)

      I agree with the others on the plastic. I think the front end guard will look good though.

      being all plastic is pretty tacky..... dont do the headlight covers fro 2 reasons, they look dorky and will kill the light output of the alreay horrible light design....

      I love having the window deflectors since I like driving with my windows open all the time. bug guards can look good sometimes, but really low profile ones. The headlight covers look bad on 1st gens, but on 2nd gens they aren't as bad. Not worth the money I think since they are a lot of times illegal and your lights won't put out nearly as much light if don't take them off everynight.

      Vent Visors rock for practical reasons! At least when you smoke and live in a very rainy city. They also allow us to keep the windows down a bit when using the truck for the tent. Even when it's dumping I get a little air flow. Plus they really do look good IMO

      I'm not really sure why I got a bugshield, but it just looked wrong without one. Keep it low profile though. In theory these are supposed to cause a air current up and over your vehicle to swoop any bugs over rather than into your window :rolleyes: Really that's what the auto ventshade site had to say LOL

      I won't comment on the head light covers.

      Well.. maybe a little. 1st the smoked light covers are so very tacky and ugly :confused:
      Second, My VW Golf had clear ones. Three seperate times they saved a light from a gravel trucks excess on the freeway. To bad they didn't make a shield for my wind shield.

      Interesting how a practical item turns into a fad in all of the above cases, but I digress for I have drifted off topic and need to go to sleep.....eventually :rolleyes:

      I know this isn't your color but just an idea, I have the window deflectors, black covers on the tail lights, bug gaurd, chrome grille gaurd and nerf bars, clear corners, and my wannabe saleen wing. To alert you man your gonna want all the mods in the book. As I still favor a hood scoop (black). I calmed down by just checking out many ex's on this site and www.cardomain.com
