Question Blacked out headlights ?

Sorry if there is a response somewhere else on the site about this.

I wanna blackout my headlights but i dont wanna burn my kitchen down haha... I've read you have to bake them? And i really dont wanna mess anything up. Can i buy them already blacked out and just ready to install? Thx guys, yall rock!

Is this worth it or not? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/05-06...mZ140268704699

Yes. I bought a set of already blacked out ones on ebay from a seller name dt_moto for about $165
Great seller. Just go to ebay.com and search for them.

Here's a pic of the ones I bought:


If you can turn around and sell your stock headlights for $150 your barely paying for new ones

Personally-I am of the mind that since there is an off the shelf component...Try it yourself. Maybe it works out and you only spent 20 bucks in paint. Mess them up...and you can still buy the commerical units.

Good luck!!

hell, I spent $5 on paint! One can of Krylon Fusion, and maybe an hour's worth of work total getting them out, opening them up, painting, back together and back in the truck.

I don't trust eBay lights as too many people have complained about them leaking/fogging, and I never keep track of who sold good ones and who sold bad ones.
