Painted 08 Headlights
Has anyone cracked open their lights to paint the insides yet? I did this with the sport compact I had a few years ago and it worked great. Havent torn into the silverados yet though... I want to paint the non-reflective pieces black to match the theme of the truck...
Here is my Matrix I color matched back in the day: [media]http://neverenoughauto.com/images/common_images/Matrix1.jpg[/media]

I'll do yours after I do mine (and learn from doing mine...). Yes, heat in the oven, and pry them open. Scary as crap though... I remember waiting the 20minutes when I did my Matrix ones. Chewed through my nails...

No offense, but if you paint the reflector or remove it, it will SERIOUSLY degrade the performance of the light. It probably isn't legal in most places and could actually be unsafe.
