Hey all.
I got bored new years eve.
And started drinking about 12 as you do new years. then my mate who just bought a ebxr6 came over and we started cleaning it up, removing stickers (ralliart, drive it like you stole it, fusion, ect) haha, then he said he didnt want his protectors, so i painted them black and i reckon they look cool.
Just wondering about the legality of them, i dont drive at night dusk or dawn with them on of course, or rainy days, but yea, is it legal or what?

had a friend with a zf lane that did the same thing looked tough but he got sick of having to remove them all the time imo clear corner indicators and cleaned up headlights look nice as well
