Cars & Driving

  • noun the process of shaping the surrounds of headlights, tail lights, number plate frames, etc. into a smooth contour when customizing, so that the actual lights, etc. recede a little towards the interior of the panel aperture and the chrome bezel or other surround looks as though it is part of the body panel.
