Post your blacked-out headlight pictures!
Show off your blacked out headlights. Include your close-up shots so we can see the design. I'm especially interested in steel silver metallic cars with blacked out headlights.

While discussing this... what would you guys consider the best paint to make it look factory? Engine enamel paint, the good ol' Krylon Fusion or other?

Blacked out your turn signal as well?^^

if you want the JDM Style headlights look into my profile... I have the pictures on my visitor message wall from a JDM Legacy's headlight I took pictures of in great detail.

subie3429 10-24-2010 12:18 PM

^ yes i did the signals too.

DeltaSniper 10-24-2010 12:22 PM

Hm.. I did the same thing but Im worried about turn signal visibility, did you change your bulb or was it amber to begin with?

My turn signal is clear but the lens (Which i removed) was amber, so now mine is clear...

The bulb was always amber.
It really didn't mess with the visibility very much.

Alright thanks.

Two sets from this weekend. Both done with a 24hour turnaround. Too fast IMHO. I need 3 days to get it perfect. I will be buying a new set of OEM 2010 lamps and perfecting the JDM black out.

^ those look great!
