I love your Beetle, it's looking great. I wanted to know how you went about color matching the inner part of your headlights. I've been searching for aftermarket headlights, and haven't had too much luck finding many, so this is the next best bet.

I really appreciate your help. Keep rockin' the Bug!!

Mattsbug | The front bumper is actually the US votex bumper which I then smoothed and reshaped a little to match the original Euro votex bumper. I also removed the indicator lights which are mounted up next to the headlights. The turn signals are now located along the bottom in the fog light position.

n2vdubz | When I had the front end of the car painted I disassembled the headlight housings and had them painted along with the bumper. If you do this I recommend going to a trusty body shop and walking them through the process. My body shop ended up cracking a housing and neither one truly fits well anymore.

And speaking of turn signals, where are they? Hidden behind the grill? Your car looks fantastic, I just wish my car had a manual! Let us know what kind of gains you get from all your mods.
