WHITE PAINTED HEADLIGHTS WITH PICS!

Well I posted a thread looking for some pics of anyone that had painted their headlights white. I liked the other color matched pics I have seen. The only colors I have come across so far is red, blue, and black. I have seen the black on white trucks and it looks good but is getting done alot. So I figured why not try white? I just got my 6.4 but have a few things planned for it, and being out of work right now I have plenty of free time. So I did the bake in the oven and got them separated. Tinted the reflector with 3 coats and painted the chrome white. They sat a day and then I siliconed them back together. Sat another day, then put them back on the truck today. Had to get some pics before it snows again. So here it is, let me know what you think. Any input on what I should do with the grille would be appreciated, definitely not staying black. Thanks!

Have been debating putting a chrome grill on or getting a white FX4 grille. I don't think painting this one would be worth the time any money I'd put into it.

I think the lights look great! I would say to keep going onto the grille and side vents.

I agree, Lights came out good. Painting the grill white would be cheap. I got a quote of $100 to paint one.

I have spent most of today working on the side vents. Doing something else that I haven't seen yet. Almost done with the driver's side and should get a pic up tomorrow. The FX4 grille is probably what I'll get. After the vents the windows are getting tinted and hoping to get some oem nerf bars.

The way it looks right now with the grill, it looks nasty, but if you paint that grill white to match, it will definitely look ALLOT better. Good job.
