    Hi all while i have my standard headlights appart to fit my Angel eyes i thought about painting the plastic surround inside the headlight.

    They are a matt black type of colour but i would like to paint the inside the same colour as my car (metalic blue/purple'ish colour) my bodyshop man says it could be done OK.
    What i want to know is are they black for a reason or if i paint them would it affect the projection of the headlight.(wouldn't want to dazzle other drivers)
    just thought i would try something a bit different that's all.
    cheers

    They come like that on a z06 so I wouldnt expect it would do anything besides look good.
