    It's a good looking truck as is, but blacked out headlights and black badges look good on silver Tacos. I wouldn't paint the wheels though. I'm not into black wheels, but that's just me.

    Personally, I'd rip off the bug shield, vent visors and mud flaps.

    It's not a tint. You need to bake the headlights in the oven to soften the sealant, pry them open, paint the housing, and re-bake to seal.
