Default Who Know's How To Customize 6th Gen Headlights

I've been wanting to customize my headlights for a long time now but I don't know how to do it. Would like Halo's LED's and painted. I saw a thread on here like 4 days ago someone posted pictures of different kind of light's but now I cant find who it is.

It is a computer program where you can pretty much make any picture, what he basically did was get a picture of the wheel from the Internet and put it on his car to make it look like he has them.

Photoshopped typically means the photo was altered, as in this context. He does not actually have the wheels on his car, he just cut/paste an image of the wheels over his actual wheels.

Also referred to as fake (but a great way to see how something will look w/o actually doing it first)

aw kenny beat me by a min lol

From what I can tell (im still a noob to maximas so im probably missing things) it is mostly just cosmetic. The two things that I have noticed as being the most different would be the front and rear bumpers. The front bumper on the 6 gen has the weird blinker lights (that are great at night but look weird) where the 6.5 gen they turned them into fog light (?) that are aimed forward. As for the rear bumper there is some minor styling differences and black along the bottom in between the exhaust. I bet there are more changes but that's what I have seen w/o researching too much into it.

Oh ok. I'm just asking because I want to customize my headlights and I'm trying to find some clear reflectors to replace the orange ones. Don't really like it so I'm trying to figure out which ones I can use. I'm thinking on buying some bigger ones and cutting them down to size and if the have to be bent a bit I want to heat them up to try and shape them but I don't know if it'll work. I been doing some research and looks like it's hard to remove the orange reflector. I would like if someone that knows how to do it can do it for me and I can pay him. But I wan to add some halos and LEDs as well and paint the inside black

If you haven't looked through here yet I would recommend it. You might find what you are looking for: Interior, Exterior & Lighting - my6thgen.org - Maxima Forum

Do you know if the reflector on a 07-08 will fit on a 05 Maxima. I seen a 07 Maxima with a clear one and I wanted to find out if they fit. I know the whole housing on a 07-08 are different then a 04-06 Maxima

You can buy the clear fluorescent light cover from home depot or lowes and cut it to fit, then its still keeps its function.
