Have wondered this for a while now. I'll offer a REWARD to anyone who can pull this off. I would kill to have the inside of the headlights be black on my car...

I've never really looked at the headlight that closely. Does it seem to you like the clear plastic would be removable? Considering buying a spare on eBay just to try this...

Dan,

You've got an email. Anyone think they can photoshop what this would look like? I would do it but I lost my illegal copy of photoshop ;). Any opinions as to whether flat black or glossy black paint would look better? Thanks!

it says 300 for oem paint match on the site. If he can do a CTS, id pay.
I can modify any car headlight. To have it painted OEM to match is $300. It gets painted and cleared coated just like your car. The headlights will match your car.

Most people go with flat black but it depends on what kind of look you are try to achieve with your car.

Looks like this is the guy to talk to for all of us wanting to get rid of the yellow lens in the turn signal/fog lights.

Devil's advocate here. Keep in mind this require the removal of the complete front bumper. Unless you get spare headlight assemblies your CTS is gonna be down for some time.:yup:

Edit: I forgot, if you have xenon HIDs and washers it gonna cost you big buck on Ebay. So much for that idea:mad:

Robert, how hard is it to remove the front bumper? Can it be done by one person? I did it on an old Camaro I had and I remember that the hardest part was getting it lined up right when putting it back on.

The only real down time is shipping. Once the headlights are in my hands it takes a day or 2. If you only want to clear (remove orange reflector) and paint flat or gloss black I will only need the headlights for 1 day and if you would like them painted OEM it will take 2 days.

If the headlights are shipped overnight both ways down time is only 4 days.

It's a lot of work and difficult for one person to handle due to its size. I have a service manual with text and diagrams how to do if anyone wants them faxed to them.
