Talking Blacking out (Head Lights) Update!!!!! Link at Bottom added Peeps

Heres is the deal..Ive got some points and Im going to make a sticky on 2004-2005 Blacking out headlights..

Youll all say yadayadayada theres already a sticky..Well the pics dont work for one and it never showed 04-05 lights..

I just got an extra pair and ill be blacking my lights this week-end with a full DIY pics and all....

The only info I really need is your honest opinion on what would look the best in terms of paint..

I really want this to look like it came out of Honda Canada like that...I want to drop some lips and jaws to the ground...Hell ill even do them RED if youll think it will look awsome..

Anyways I know I have to get high heat paint but should it be flat or glossy???

I promise a great DIY with great Pics..
Whats the sense in having a DIY if the pics dont work ..its just wasted space to me and to all the others...
Remember its for 04-05 lights....

no primer is needed, at least i didn't use any. you might want to sand them down a little bit though. if you don't sand them the paint tends to run away from the sharp angles of the chrome peice.

i'm not sure, whatever grit that will leave the least amount of scratches.
you probably don't need a rough one though. the crome comes off REALLY easy. some of my chrome pulled off from just painters tape.

on a silver car i'd go with a matte black or flat black. the BBQ paint works well. i didn't even sand or primer and they came out pretty damn nicely.

you dont need to sand anything. if you want the chrome off just use VIM to wash it off. you should use KRYLON paint, that sticks to anything.

Hey its kalvin, i like the headlights, and for the first time i really like the way that cf hood looks on your car. I think the cf look is RETARDED on any other car than a black or dark grey like that. It looks great on yours, but ill never understand the look of a red, white, blue or whatever other color car with a black hood. Looks more ghetto than anything else to me. Just my $.02
