Question: I have Xenon and would like to do this but will my car pass inspection if I spray the high beam bezels? There would be no light output if they were sprayed black since there is nothing to reflect against. Is that correct? I like the yellow look but can't find the stained glass paint anywhere.

You will pass inspection, and look on amazon for the stained glass paint, I believe they stopped selling them in store. This question has been covered in my thread >>>>>>>Here<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Ok great! I'm worried about trying to pull it off the halos also and something snapping.

I just took the lens covers off and taped off what I didn't want hit and sprayed one good coat of Krylon Yellow Stain Glass Paint. No sanding and it dried like a mirror.
