so i am going to try to do my headlights soon. i was curious what you all thought about this idea...


so you know the silver reflective rings ( ie jackie and shawn have both body matched those to the housing as well) i am debating about body matching the rings or flat blacking them out. the housing will be body matched. what do you all think??

I say flat black the rings. It is a lot of work though, I wanted to do that to mine silver/blue. My painter looked at me and asked me if I was fucking crazy?? I replied yes I am! Well long story short he would have had to charge me more than double the price because of the prep work involved.
