I kinda recognize that hill in the background in the first picture.

Car looks good, but I agree either put stock lenses back on or tone the tint down a good amount on em. They look like they were spraypainted black.

The tinted turns will probably look 10X better if you paint the headlight bezels black as well. Very clean 242!

Looks like a very healthy 242, the tinted lenses do look a bit weird. I'd say it's a good contestant to resurrect Don H's old 242 from the dead.

i used to think the american headlights for 200 and 700 series were cooler than the e-codes we get over here... i have since changed my mind. ESPECIALLY on 700s

but yeah i like your car... 2-door 200s are awesome. just need to lower it a tad - and turn the datestamp off on your camera! :-P

one of the best ways to paint the bezels is to peel the chrome off first.. but that can be a pita.. and u can cut yourself in the process.

even easier is scuffing it, starting out with 40 grit, and going finer until you get to 150. Krylon fusion paint. 3+ years on mine, and it hasn't flaked off.

yea i was questioning the tint as well, i didnt realize that i sprayed then so dark, and i do agree that they will look alot better with the lights and grille painted black, i already did this but the paint peeled cuz i'm a noob at painting so i took those off lol.:rofl:

some of you might remember a 242 that was for sale a long time ago, it had a narly dent on the side along with pink flames.

That will make it look 100 times worse. Think IROC-Z.

Use model window tint, and coat it to how dark you like, that's what I did to my wagon, and it's held since sept. with no fade.
