Smoked Headlight Reflector ?

How would you go about doing it? I saw one that had the reflector smoked and thought it looked good. I am not too crazy about doing the whole headlight, just the orange reflector. Any ideas how to get to it?

You can take them to a body shop and have them paint the reflectors with black and clear coat

Can the clear cover that covers the headlight be removed? The reflector is under the cover.

I know where the reflector is....most people paint the OUTSIDE though..tape it off and paint.

They CAN be taken apart..it takes some heat..put them in the oven on a low setting for about 15-20 mins...and pry them apart...BUT...its hard to get them or any lights sealed back up good and the chances of you getting condensation inside is very high once you take them apart.
