    Blacked out my fogs/markers

    Here are a couple pics of my fog/marker assembly I painted. I had a hard time deciding between clear or black, then finally decided on blk since the car is black. I'm eventually going to do the tails and side markers as well. Has anyone tried disassembling the headlight housings? I want to paint the inside gray part black rather than the entire housing.

    looks good man. It drives me nuts how shitty the headlights look. I think I'll end up just doing a light tint over mine to hide the color contrast.

    Surprisingly, the blinker still lights up pretty bright and is easily visible even in the daylight.

    Thanks. I totally agree with you about the headlights. If I can't get the stock housings apart w/o ruining them, then I'll probably just do like you and spray a light coat over them in an attempt to blend them in with the car more.

    Still shows orange, but with a slightly darker hue.

    I'll say it.

    The fog lights look like they are useless now as far as functionality. And the parking lights look very out of place. I think you need to change them.
