Default PT MERCEDES???

I'm wanting to do something different - customize my headlights and mirrors. What is your opinion of this look - mind you it's just a photo manipulation but I'm leaning in this direction. Want to replace my fender liners, my headlights and my side mirrors. Thinking about going with Mercedes parts.

even if you were an expert in sheet metal fabrication and welding, that would still be more effort than it's worth. i'd advise clearing this idea out of your head. i think you'd just end up with a 1/2 finished project and some expensive headlights sitting around collecting dust. honestly, i think stock headlights look better than those anyways.

Mirrors, okay, but the headlights - I wouldn't...

I would check the slope of the mercedes headlights to see if they would match up to the slope of the fenders

Anything can be done. But you have to have some skills like mine. And I can tell you, to do it right is a ton of work . Besides It looks cross eyed. Just because it is a Mercedes part doesn't lend any more class to the PT. It has to look great not just different. JMHO. You have to ask yourself, if that light came from a Scion. Would you have considered it?

And if you're going to do that use the Hyundai Sonata lights. Looks just as good a probably 1/4 of the price of MB lights!!!
