    You know guys... I felt just like you, but one you have the first headlight apart, its cake after that. I used Krylon Ultra-Flat "Camouflage". I used the same paint on my emblems.

    For whoever is thinking about doing this, DO IT! Its not hard at all, just time consuming. I know the oven thing throws most people off, seriously, the hardest part to this whole thing was spry painting them.
