Looks really good. I need to stop by and see the headlight covets.

ItsOnVoy said:Or if you want no covers, tape off where the light goes through and color match the rest of the light! that would prob look the cleanest without a cover but a cover is good if you want to go back to stock!

ItsOnVoy said:Tape off where the lights shine through when you brake, signal reverse etc. Then just clean them. wet sand them (2000 grit) and then paint them. I would prob use about 3-6 coats depending on how heavy each coat is (which I wouldn't go too heavy so you do not get drips) and then clear coat them after about 3-6 coats also and you should be good from there.
Or if you want to go a easier way without taping off then you can get those chrome covers I put up and sand those down with a heavier sand paper at first to rough them up and then go to the 2000 grit and paint and clear coat also. After that put them on and see how they look! If you ever want to go back to stock you just take the covers off. They are with 3m tape I believe.

ItsOnVoy said:There is sand paper that can be dry or wet sand. wet sand is pretty much dip the sand paper in water and sand the surface. That usually works out good so you do not get starches on your lights from the sand paper! They come out pretty smooth also!
