i painted the flat spots(not the cone/reflectors) black on my camaro's headlights. for a cheap mod, i liked it. no idea what the 940 lights are like, how it'll look, but if it looks bad you can just get some j/y ones and swap your clear cover if need be

Never did get a good pic of mine before I scrapped the car. Ignore the indicator lenses :lol:

Oh and if you're planning on doing it yourself, I'd HIGHLY recommend you do it by hand with a fine brush. I masked mine off with tape and used a spray can, and afterwards half the chroming came off with the tape :owned:

I did this on my cross country a few years back and the results wer enot as pronounced since the lights do not take up as much of the front end as they do on the 2XX/7XX/9XX cars. When I will be swapping lenses on my 240, I will do this....it looks great and makes the lights blend in a bit more, especially on a dark car.

I don't think it'd look good unless you get E-codes

Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for but I'm happy with the way they came out

One day I'd like to take out the turn signals and paint the interior black like some people have here.
