Very interesting. It is true though, it is better not to drive too fast on the 405, cuz there are a lot of crazy drivers there.

Re: 209 before & after

Be aware that there are a couple different process for doing this, ask the shop that quoted you the process some shops "go all out" color sanding the lights re-sanding and applying a color sanded look to blend that ther plastic in the lights-shading the lights to the desired color. They then can be color sanded back off to stock. Some shops just spray the lights...................
bubbles,runs,fading,chipping ect.....
