    headlight mod for birds...

    so i was messing around with my headlights the other afternoon because one of them was off a little...so while i was looking around, i got an idea for a quick litttle mod...take off the plastic covers that surround your headlights, and paint them to match your car's paint scheme....of course mine is black so you cant really see it..but if any of you would like to see how this looks on your car...just post up a pic of your headlights from the front and side and i will re-post it with the color applied to it so you can see it before you decide whether or not you want to do it...heres mine:

    I really thought of getting mine painted Oynx black(factory color) instead of the dull black but im worried about the paint cracking since you have to bend them to take them on/off.

    They make a flex additive you add when you paint bumpers and other parts that will keep it from cracking.

    i mean you have to ad it with the paint befor you spray it on the car so it will take a paint gun not a spray can. so if you take it to a body shop and have them paint it they should do all that for you.
