    What do you mean? Painted the headlights the same color as the car?

    I plan on doing that when I open them up to retrofit some HIDs.

    I have though about it but someone reminded me of the C6 corvette and then had 2nd thoughts . Im sure its ok with black DGM maybe silver but I wouldnt be a fan with WRB or SWP Red. I wouldnt mind just paint the shroud rim body color.

    It'd be interesting to see for sure...C6 Vette is the first thing I thought of as well.

    I recall a white (SWP or AW, can't recall) with color matched headlights, can't find it, though I didn't really search much. Just ask someone to photoshop the car with the headlight the same, at least you'll get something slightly better than a mental image to eyeball. Actually think the pic might have been in a thread about opening and painting the headlights, possibly a hawkeye specific thread. Almost want to say it was on NASTY-SOC. Good luck, since I recall the thread being 30-40+ pages long on non-noob settings.
