yeah i painted them with the tires on, paint doesnt stick to the tires very well and comes off pretty easy with a wire brush. I did not paint the inner lip.

Nah, not a honda (threads are different I believe).

I'd like to get the fogs to run separate from the headlights also and I really like those smoked turn signals
