Hi all,

Just purchased myself a nice v6 mondeo mk2 and already I have a nice few ideas for it. So basically I'm gonna post em here to see what you guys think and to get some advice on how to go about some stuff.

Basically I want to play on the fact the car is black. I want to start with smoked tail lights so they blend with the body, smoked side repeaters again to blend in. Possibly some form of tinting to the headlights to make them as dark as is legal. Then window tints again you guessed it black as is legal all round. Alloys.. now here is where I am stuck, I have narrowed the choice down to white or black. Should I keep the black going or should I have a nice contrast with the white? Last but not least im contemplating the idea of a smooth boot. I've heard it can be a ball ache but it does look nice on some cars.

Any tips, criticisms and ideas all welcome.

Thanks in advance

Personally since your going black I would have said go with black wheels, or maybe even a dark red just to compliment them! as for the smooth boot, it is worth it once you have put in a bit of elbow grease.

As for the headlights, be careful. The last thing you want is to be stopped everyother day and end up with an "I've already had this conversation with your colleague officer, it is legal by 0.5%..."
