Well, I decided to go ahead and paint my headlights and Fog lights. I decided to go with satin blak finish, and I wanted to do something a little different than everyone else...

Soooo, I masked off the inside of the ring in the housing, and the outer bevel on each ring, leaving that part chrome and painting the rest black. It is kinda hard to explain in words, so I will let the pics do the talking...







I don't have pics of the lights on the car yet, as I am waiting for my new bumper to be painted before I put them back in.

Here is a sneak peak...



I will have more pics this weekend!!!

leaving that ring looks really good. i think thats the right way to do it. check this out. i found this on a Altezza site.

That ring looks like it is a brushed aluminum finsish though. It looks really nice! See the modellista mark on them too! They probably cost about 2 grand if they are modellista parts.
