Painted my headlights

Finally got around to pulling my headlights apart and painting them. I painted them black and i also painted the orange reflector the same sterling metallic grey to match the truck. I think they turned out really good.

Looks good, sharp looking truck!! I'd like to paint mine but never seen it done on a 05, i'm afraid it just wouldn't be the same.

It is not an easy job, but well worth it I think. I actually ended up buy an extra set of oem headlights so that i could leave mine in and take my time pulling the others apart and painting. I am glad I did it that way because it is not something i would want to do in a one day.

I will be selling the other set of OEM headlights that I have and I had even thought about offering to paint them for someone that wants them painted whatever color that want (obviously for an adjusted price). But now that I have done one set I really don't know if I would want to do another set. LOL.
