I'm sure you mean paint your headlights black? like BHLM?

Or do you reallllllllly mean behind your lights, but no one would know unless your headlights were not there?


BHLM (black headlight mod)---- Search, there are close to a million threads on the topic.

There is a thread for under the mods & tutorials section / cheap Tacoma mods. Look for the “BHLM mod” I did this about six months ago and it worked great no fogging. Just be sure that you put a piece of cardboard on your oven rack or you housing might melt to your rack. I would recommend putting a layer or two of clear coat down before putting them back together. I didn’t do this and I scratched the paint off the edges when I reassembled. Good luck
