Default My new mod.........



Ohhhh yea.....









First u must obviously remove the headlights/remove bulbs
Second take a heat gun and SLOWLY heat up the outside of the seam.....if u do not do this slowly u could crack the lens
Take the reflector and slightly sand any area u don't think is detrimental to light.....then paint it w/small brush and ur choice of paint.....I bet if u did this in any body color it would prolly look pretty good??
Then put every thing back together again.....
Very short explaination because I'm afraid my computer is going to kick me off!!

Gorgeous! I always wondered what the housings would look like in black. I'd definitely consider this mod.

The links are broken, I took some pics of yours too. Now I'm debating if I want to do it in black and tint the corners or paint it body color and spray paint the corners VERY lightly so it'll flow together.

Decisions, decision!!!
