    SAS.. Need I say more.
    If you paint the reflector black, then you will see decrease in brightness.. Otherwise, you should not notice a difference at all.

    i always thought since your painting the reflective chrome background black then that would kill all brightness

    With bhlm you only want to paint the bezel and not the reflector. The bezel is just chrome and for show. The reflector is what the light actually bounces off of. So it shouldn't affect brightness too much. It might affect how much glare is there.
