Anyone do black headlight mod? - TX

Im looking for someone who would be willing to black out a pair of headlights/corners for me. Is there anyone that sells them already done or an exchange deal? Just looking.

bake them in your oven for 10 min at 200, then pull them apart and paint them. best quality your gonna get.

I think that's what he wants done... just doesn't want to do it himself.

They're easy to do, I've done 3 sets. I was scared the first time too but It wasn't bad and i didn't melt my lights.

I recently modded a 2006+ tail light too

they aren't those ones in the picture but they'll look exactly the same. i wrecked it last year but those corners weren't modded.

I'll let you know when/if i get them done soon.

will do. I just did a front end swap on a members truck today and he bought lights from ebay and they looked good to me. I still like doing my own lights but the ones installed didn't look bad.

quick picture of the ebay lights/front end swap
