Painted Lights and Side Vents

I finally painted my headlights. I painted them the charcoal to match and also smoked the reflector. While I was waiting for them to dry I also painted my badges and side vents to match. Tell me what you think. Sorry for the dirty truck.

Truck looks awesome, great work. Is it a big project to take the headlights apart?

you have to bake your headlights to soften the sealant. and from what i've heard, its a pretty long process.
