pretty easy to do

use 220 and wet snaded the headlights by hand

clean them off after wet sanding i using windex then a tack cloth.

hair dryer to dry them more

used krylon stain glass paint. 6 oz can yellow of course lol

this shit is not forgiving
stay at least 12inches away while spraying no more then 2 coats.

if ya dont stay at least 12 inches away it will streak on you


before


after wet sanding


no pics but i did paper and tape them off

after
ill try to get them sat in the car so you can kinda see what they look like, but its raining like a mofo

yellow light is better than white light.
ever drive with yellow glasses at night? its badass.
Atleast for me cuz im blind and have bad astigmatism, so it help cut down on glare.

and looks.

i ordered some blue tint so ill let you know.

cool. i wonder how well the paint will stick to glass? maybe next time paint the inside of the lens so it wont chip or wear off?

either way it looks great.
i was thinking about painting on the inside as well, but that might let water in if you don't seal it back good.

ive painted the inside of the housing before, just heat the head light up to around 220f for 10 mins or so, it comes apart easy... then re-head and re-assemble.

mine never leaked but i see what you are saying. hopefully i wasnt just lucky that one time.
