    Cool No more gray!! Opened the headlights and painted the inside!!!

    Well I decided enough was enough with the gray so I opened the headlights and painted all of it black and what a difference it looks much better! While they were open I also decided to get some leds in there that I can control with a remote so I can use them for shows or pictures!

    What sucks is the border gray seems to be injection molded to the lens so what you have to do here is just paint it or vinyl it. However, I am working on getting a mold of the lens so that it will be clear or color of the car instead of gray and no need to paint em or anything!

    Xheck it out and tell me what you think. Thoughts and opinons?? I will probably start reproducing this for those who are interested! Haven't figured out a price or anything yet though!
    What I did was just paint it all black but I mean I can have it match the car paint or something just like this, I can also setup the leds for you too.

    What kind of paint did you use and did you have to sand first? I have the headlights out and am thinking of doing this before stuffing them back in
