Headlight and Turn Signal Surrounds

by Dustin Mankin

The other post today isn't much, but it's something!. Just cleaned up the headlight surrounds, but they were super dirty, with over spray from the previous owner with 10 years worth of dirt over top of that. We just decided to give it a light wet 400 grit sand. After that we degreased and hit it with some plastic parts primer, to get it ready for paint.

The paint is a single stage paint, that we put a little bit of flattening agent in. I think the sheen came out pretty nice. It's a satin look. They aren't 100% perfect, but all of the parts that weren't perfect will actually be hidden, even when the lights are up.

We decided that we couldn't leave the turn signal surrounds alone, so while we were at it, I sanded them down, and then did the same process with them. Unlike the headlight surrounds, these came out great! It couldn't have been any better.

Sorry the updates on the project have been kind of small lately. I'm just trying to document as much of this build as I can, big and small.

What do you think so far?
