Yeah Id be interested in tinting my headlights too. Not necessarily a black, but possibly a blue. Similar to the most AWESOME 940 I have ever seen:http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/266768

These are my euros but the concept is the same. Just paint the non-reflective part of the lenses. I think i posted this in another thread so mind my pic whoring. I just used flat black krylon paint.

I did that too, before I rebuilt and installed my lights.

If you look at the link on my post you can see that i simply painted all of the non-reflective surfaces flat black.

HAHAAHA a friend of mine tinted his headlights as black as those...then he put in some 100W H4 bulbs, so he could see anything in the dark....after half an hour of driving with the lights on, the glass cracked... :rofl:

Ok so what I did was paint my turn signals all black but in high gloss I might go back and paint the parts closest to the bulb I dont know, Then I just painted the botton of the headlights but should I paint the side closest to the grill also?? The headlights dont seem dark enough but I dont want to black them all out or for them to look wierd. The turns look good though and still work good.BTW im only painting the insides from the way I put it it sounded like I was just painting the painting the outside;)
