Default Is Painting headlights possible?

Hey guys, I have often wondered this.

Has anyone ever seen a Dodge Charger, the new one. I really like its headlights, the surrounding is black and the lights and its refective areas stay reflective. The cover is not painted, it is on the, I don't know what to call it, headlight assembly? I really like them and I was wondering if there was any areas on the lights of the Bonnie that can be painted without reducing light power.

Hope that works, it looks awesome!

Pot? He'* smoking pot is that what you saying?

Don't worry I know what you're trying to say. I've looked at my lights and I only see a small area that could be painted and most of it is not visible until you're right on top of it.

i always thought of doing this too. Something like the GP headlights would be cool were they are slightly smoked
