    I saw a guy on another forum do this exact same project on a new style silverado, but in the silver birch (or whatever they were calling that color in 2007), and it looked really good in that color. White should look really good too.

    Here you go. I hope this helps clarify. It's tough to see that these are painted silver as the contrast with the chrome bowls isn't terribly good.

    Also, there wasn't space to list this, but the entire piece on the left side is something I call the 'assembly'. It's also fair to call that piece plus the lens the 'assembly' (when fully assembled, of course).

    Right on bud.. that actually helps clarify what you were saying before alot. Sorry i disappeared on you earlier. The well wasn't just doing something "weird" it was trying to completely die on me. Finally got it back and lined out haha. I appreciate your help/insight on the project, looking forward to trying my hand at something new and seeing how it turns out!

    That sounds like a bada$$ idea. I am lucky in the fact that when I put in the putco bulbs the reflection from the bulbs make mine match. Post some pics before, during and after.

    I bought a set of DEPO headlights to replace my chrome ones on my 2010 Silverado. They are not painted but actually glossy plastic inside. They look exactly like the OEM lights I took out but without the chrome. Maybe if you could find someone that has a contact with the manufacturer of DEPO lights you could get the assembly before they put the lens on and then getting the lens off would not be an issue. Just a thought. (also the DEPO ligts are MUCH cheaper)

    If your looking for a light to practice on I have a right side light from my pickup that you could have for the price of shipping. I am interested in seeing how this turns out.
