They're not "Smoked".. you have to take the headlight assembly appart which you can find out how to do in the DIY section... then u just paint the chrome with black paint that can withstand heat... i dont know exactly what kind of paint people used... do a search and you'll probably find out..

Yeah smoked headlights are DIY and the projectors you can buy through most sites. But yeah search should give you more info, it has been covered on some other threads awhile back.

I did it too, I used Krylon High-Temp BBQ paint. I wish I had gone with something with more gloss, but I think it still looks OK. Click the sig to see a pic. I have have no probs with the po-po. Lots of cars are starting to come like that now, just not our Civs.
