Another Headlight Painting Idea

What do you guys think about painting portions of the reflectors in addition to the plastic pieces of the headlight? I saw another thread where Racerx painted the entire reflector where the turning signal is, and that looks much better in my opinion (and you really don't need that reflector too badly). But I think it may look cool to give the other reflectors, which are in the casing that encompasses the brights and the parking lights, some shape.

I'm not talking about the entire reflector, but maybe just a little around the edges to give it a slightly sharper and sleeker shape.

I was thinking of buying some black construction paper to at least get the feel of how it would look.

painting the reflectors will affect your light output. thus defeating the purpose of hids or all those "close to hid" bulbs. thumbsdown

^exactly...don't do it...they are there in the headlight to reflect the light better.
