Looks good! I've been back and forth on it. If my truck was monochromatic it wouldn't even be a hesitation, but I dn how it's going to look with the KR white/tan...

Where are you located btw?

Can you give me a tut as I want to do this for both head and tail lights on my 02. If it's cheaper then buying pre blacked out lights I'm down for it.

The KR's look pretty awesome with the lights done the primary color of the truck. You would have thought Ford would have started this a long time ago. And yes, its much cheaper breaking them apart to repaint vs. buying a pair online. Like the HD's they're crazy expensive.

That's a fair price for the work that's involved.

I'm actually kinda diggin it! Let me get me Trans Am all lined out so I can daily drive it before I take out the headlights and I'm def giving you a call. How long do you think it would take if I overnighted them to you and back?

PM me your number and I'd def be down for payin you to do it in a few weeks (or whenever you have free time).
