Painting headlights..

BEFORE YOU START FLAMING ME... hear me out.. didnt bother searching due to the "uniqueness" of my question.. actually, i just want people's opinions.. and i'm bored and pulled this idea out of my ***..

what do you guys think about applying a glowing paint to the headlights.. maybe just an accent, so when you turn your heads off it emits a luminescent glow... i found this paint kinda enticing <sp?>... i was thinking about the straight up white glow paint..
here's the link http://www.glowpaintpro.com/index.html

apparently, you can use this paint for all sorts of ****.. if enough people think it'd be a cool/alright idea, i might do it...

and please, none of that "that's hella rice! wtf do you want to do that for..?!" ****..


Mmmm.. shiny...

Man, thats a tight idea. It would look hot as hell at night. I'm gonna look into that.... if they have like black paint that glows in the dark then I'm sold.

edit**

nevermind, there is no black paint plus it doesnt come ina spray can. if you have to paint it on with a brush it will become chunky and wont look right up close.

good idea though

I really like the way my headlights look like stock, but I give you props for coming up with such idea.

haha... i looked on the site and there are people that have painted whole cars using that stuff.. the powder, actually... and if you read the site, the white dries pretty much clear, but with light exposure, it charges the glowing-ness of the paint.. i think i'ma buy me some of that and do some painting when i get home...

you can always go to home depot or something and get a small paint sprayer, cant you..?

even if it's like regular paint, outlining the headlights might work, especially once you turn off your car and it's still glowing
