    Hey guys so I just got my Hella 500's in the other day and since my truck is mostly black I didnt really like the mostly white covers....so I painted them.

    Step 1: Sand down the outside plastic a little so the paint will stick.[​IMG]

    Step 2: Tape off the inside part...this didnt take very long, it was just annoying.

    Step 3: Paint! I used textured paint for outdoor material. (hopefully it will stay) I have always liked the look of textured. I applied 3 coats.

    I think they turned out awesome! It's pretty simple but I think it went a long way.

    Here they are up top
