Those look great.

On my headlights the outer circle has an orange reflector in it and on these lights it is clear. How can I make mine like that?

It is actually a yellow bulb behind a white/clear lens, it should be anyway.... Pull out the bulb and try putting in hyper white or blue bulbs.(which ever is your preference). That should give you what i think you are looking for.

Looks great, I plan on painting my headlights also. I am just going to do a solid color though. Did you just paint over the reflector? I noticed that the little triangle piece not painted isnt amber, what did you do to acomplish this.

I took the reflector and molded it to the "black" housing in the headlihgt then I smoothed out all the ripples inside the triangle on the reflector. Then I cut the back part of the triangle out and used a clear plastic that I have used a couple of times on headlights.

I LOVE them painted like that......I'm no a fan of the flat color on some lighter colors (like silver frost, spruce green)as it takes away from the appeal and makes the black part stand out WAY to much around the outside of the headlight. I'm letting you know in advance I'll likely steal that scheme.....definatly like it!! Great job!

QUESTION: did you paint the headlights along with the bodykit/car?

Or did you paint the headlights with spray paint?

Sorry i didn't reply sooner. i haven't read any of my posts in about a month :banghead:

No spray paint anywhere on my car. The car has been painted for a while and i never really did anything with the headlights. I got bored so i ripped them apart. So yea, it is all PPG paint.


ZUM send me your headlights :biggrin: I'll do them for ya
