I love your Xterra. I've never noticed your build thread before today but I seriously want to do half the things you've done. Any chance you'll give out your sources and secrets on some of these mods?

since it is an 05 it had the chrome housing heads. i took them off and baked them in to oven to loosen the glue. separated the housings and painted the insides matte black. there are some write ups on this site for the procedure. some people scrub the chrome off because it is gloss black underneath(08+ i believe have black housing headlights).

for the most part everything i have done is stuff that i have found in the "how-to" section of this site. some of the stuff i may have modified or put my own twist on...but for the most part it is all stuff that other members on here have done already and been nice enough to post a write-up on.

anything in particular you were wanting extra info on?
