    Anyone out there done a Magnetic Grey Metallic Headlight Mod on a MGM Yota instead of black? I thought there might have been one a while back, but I'm not finding it. IIRC there was also someone who did a Silver Streak HLM.

    Sounds pretty cool: I'm curious as to how it'd look.

    If anyone's done it, please post some pics -- I may have to do it to mine.

    Weather permitting, I'm doing it this weekend. If it's nothing but rain it'll be next weekend. I am leaning toward just going MGM.

    Yeah I didn't think anyone would trade on a botched set. I guess if it doesn't look worth a damn, I'll just go black and deal with it.

    Ive seen Color matched headlights on Honda accords ( 6thGenaccord.com) They look good. I had thought of doing it with my honda when i had it.. but I think it would look good with our trucks too...MGM sounds like it would be cool

    I've seen a red, speedway blue, dark blue and white. I did a superwhite and think it came out looking nice.

    I though about it since I had the MGM paint for the grille anyway, but I decided it wouldn't be worth the extra work, for myself anyway. Plus nobody would really notice or appreciate it since it would be very similar compared to black under the headlight lens.
    I would still like to see pics when you get it done tho :)

    Yeah, I do think that 99% of people who see it that are familiar with the HLM will think it's black. I'm completely alright with that. Just thought I'd give it a go and see if it looks worth a damn. It's not looking too good for this weekend, so maybe next weekend I'll have it done.
