    I know a couple people who can paint including myself, but for you I would say just bring it to a local body shop. Unless if you want to tackle it yourself. Painting really isn't that difficult.

    Tinting your headlights and such is illegal but most cops won't do anything about it as long as they aren't too dark. A friend of mine has found a really good way of tinting lights and it comes out awesome.

    I bet the RPMs sing with 4.10s in there at about 65.

    You want them smoked? If you wanna make the drive I could probably get them done for you for next to nothing. My buddy paints them and they come out really nice. Its not a can of spray tint either.
