PIC REQUEST 05-07 painted headlights

Just grabbed up a set of 05-07 headlights, and was thinking about color matching the insides..

was hoping to see pics of people who had done it.. doesn't have to be white like mine, but color matched would be awesome..

thanks in advance

Does this effect the output of the lights?

I haven't heard of any issues with it. I mean the harley lights come painted black from the factory. Now Idk about our 99-03s, you'll have to talk to ramstein about that

These are aftermarket lights...but you get the same idea
They were black, looked cool. but wanted to change it up a bit


Painted white. turned out ok, but still gonna redo them to be perfect. also my clear covers are a bit scratched from being old so i will be replacing those so they dont look so foggy and yellow'd

I like that white. I think I'll do that with mine instead of going black. Now just gotta find time to pull em apart, get the paint and paint em plus my mirrors.

Thanks. its very very easy. and instead of baking them in the oven. its much easier to use a space heater one full blast, or a heat gun. some people even use a hair dryer! all you're doing is heating the glue a little then pry it apart with a flathead screwdriver or knife.
