    I was in the process of doing the black headlight mod and thougt about doing the CHLM, I tried to search this and failed. I am thinking about just removing the reflectors and that yellowish lense and putting them back together totally chrome. Look at my truck, It has a chrome grille shell so this might look good and be different. however i would like to see a pic. Any help on this would be awesome. Thanks

    Yup I did that on my black truck for about 2 years when I had chrome rims. I liked it until I bought black rims. You going to leave yours that way?

    Don't you have to have reflectors in them to be legal?

    whent ahead and did the black thing. I think the chrome would have looked just as good but then i would just be wanting to take them apart and spray them black, now i can stop thinking about it. I guess it's like they say, once you go black you never go back.
