Daily Driver Owned by Rayne

  • This is my only car, so obviously it's my daily driver. She was stock when I got her nine years ago (I've only had one other car) and unfortunately she has never been garage kept. I learned pretty much everything I know about cars from working on her, a lot being trial and error. I've done the majority of the work on her myself.

      It is a protectant film. I got it online, think it was ebay I ordered it from. If I remember correctly I just typed in protectant film and found it. They actually change colors depending on the angle you look at them from. Think I have a few more pics from different angles where you can see that.

      Yah, a lot of people think that. I've heard a few people say there's a spray that does the same thing, but I've never looked for it. There are lights that actually look like this without using a spray or film but they are super expensive. I've only seen one pair for sale and they were around $1,000.00 just for the headlights.
