    Default Head light tinting

    Got a spare headlight from a fellow member TRAVEC19 (cheers m8) with the intention of cutting open to black the chrome inside heres how i got on.
    First i cut open with the dremel


    Then rubbed down and primed


    Then painted matt black


    Then reasembled unit



    Then ground around the edge of base and front glassthen bonded back together and placed on car to see how it looked





    What do you think guys and girls?

    Was it hard to split? As I want to do my chrome rings in orange or grey, would buy a second set first like you have done.....
