    i think painting the headlight makes it look cheap, but if thats the look your going for... im interested to see how it turns out tho

    I find that lightly basting the lenses in butter and cloves makes them very nice. =D

    Good luck with those lights!

    Cut, taped and painted today. Tossing on another coat of black and two coats of clear tomorrow. I'll put them back together on Thursday and putting them back on the truck on Friday. Hopefully the truck is back from the bodyshop by then... I'll post photos when the truck is reassembled.

    Cool..I'm still undecided if I want to do that or not. Have a spare headlight I bought on ebay for $30 I can practice on. Anyone that does their actual headlights is HARDCORE man.

    Cheap is exactly what I'm shooting for. Glad you chimed in. :great:

    Yeah, they're all painted and ready to be put back together. They look amazing! I snapped some photos this afternoon. I'll post them up tomorrow when I return to the office. We'll be putting them back together tomorrow morning and picking up the truck from the body shop in the afternoon. Hopefully Friday we wont have a ton of installs and the guys can put the truck back together and the decals can be put on. I'll snap some shots and post them up. I want to get the truck back together before I leave for SEMA on Monday.
