>X Painted Headlight aka Chris brown thread! X<
 
EDIT: added- diy here http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...888&highlight=

ok, i have been on the fence with this one for a long time, but i have decided, once my car is un burred from the snow, im gonna paint the headlights! I love the chris brown blackout look but i think im gonna go with yellow/gold with 2500k bulbs, or maybe black with 2500k bulbs, i guess im still undecided, if i do black tho, i'll b kicking myself for getting my DRL's turned of recently.


could anyone photo-chop both looks on my car please

Since You have projectors I would suggest blacking them out. If you had halogens I woulda said do the yellow.

I want to know what is used for paint to get them yellow. This looks SICK

Sapikest 02-12-2010 08:21 AM

That looks sick! So what is this? Is the housing just painted? If so, with what kind of paint?

2000_328CI 02-12-2010 08:25 AM

I would do it the way Im did his and just blackout the halogen reflector portion... either that or paint it yellow. Personally, I like the blacked out look more.

blue is puuuuuudry, im set on yellow or black tho


and anyone asking how its done, you actually spray paint the chrome reflecting portion of the high beam and some times theprojector bezel


anyone making a photochop?

Krystian_E46 02-12-2010 03:34 PM
