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.

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
