    Changing the look some on my 14' Mirage

    Well I'm taking my time, picking and choosing as to what I want my Mirage DE with C.V.T to look like.

    Today I added some graphics and Plasti Dipped the bumper.





    Trying to have a cool uniform pattern , this picture was after I added the graphics and pinstripe to the lower body.
    So far I'm happy with my work, all started when I changed out the OEM wheel covers. Lol









    Big difference in how it looks compared to the day I bought it.

    Excellent job.

    Those are all great looking modifications.

    Especially like the Plasti Dipped front end. Looks good and will help protect from rock chips.

    The way they were lit up in your last pic I had to ask.
    I've been looking for something to replace those cheesy reflectors myself.
    There must be some reason for those deep recesses... they could have just stuck reflectors on a flush panel.
    On some continent there must be a light that goes in there. (Fingers crossed)
    Will weld for beer.

    It's because the reflectors have to lay parallel to the car's centerline. So they would either have to stick "out" like the add-on reflectors on the 1st gen Smart that was imported to Canada, or sit recessed.

    Sadly, this larger rear bumper with reflectors is unique to Canada/US.
