Sick lookin 240.

i dont see why youd want to pay 150 + Trade

when you can make yours look just like his for about 10$ + elbow greese + Time = :D his lights for 10$ lol

Smoked out looks better on certin colour cars. Are you planning on painting yours? If so what colour and how soon?

paint probably wouldn't come around for another year, engine swap first, then aero kit and paint. its either gonna be a repaitn, or black

thats a niiiiice 240. I like tinted tails as long as you dont do them too dark. Im not a fan of doing anything to your lights that make them harder too see, esp with all the moron drivers on the road who cant see you when its daylight out

Yeah, leave them stock, at least till you know what color you're gonna make the car. That way you avoid having to find a new set if you change your mind. And, as a person who has lost a 240SX and a Silvia to being rear-ended, even the stock lights can be hard to see.

03-27-2006, 03:21 AM

Leave it stock and put the money toward a spoiler

I like the tinted look. Man that 240 looks sick!

Keep them stock, they look better tinted but it also darkens them a lot. Most people are morons on the road and may not even see you when it's dark, especially if they're tinted.
