Smile Finally Painted my Headlight Trim

I Really didn't want to go with the Aluminum, so I went ahead with the Car Color, what do you guys think. I will post more pics once Installed.

You get the Paint from www.towerpaint.com all they need is your color code and your make and model.

Do people who take apart the headlight housing have adjustment problems with the lights after they reinstall them? I want to paint my headlight trim but I don't want to get my head readjusted by the dealer and pay some ridiculous amount.

Val: one way to remain unique is to not share the idea. Hehehe. Hmmm, I'll do mine too -- in Ti Silver. I guess I get the best of both worlds (to match the OEM color for this trim as well as matching my body color too!). Silver is faster!

Jake,
