I've been a Nazi to people about this lol but have you ever heard of the Harley Headlight mod? you do exactly what he did with the body matching paint, but instead you use black. It gives it a "blacked" out look but yet you still have the brightness of your lights. I think the picture in my sig has my harley mod
