GB: Interest: Painted Headlinghts
Ok, I see a lot of people are painting their headlings, but some people are afraid to do it.

If I get 5 people I will go ahead and do this. You have 2 choices, the first is if you want me to do this on used headlinghts or new headlights and second is color obviously.

I can also add angel eyes for $15 more.

The cost will be the cost of the headlights (unless you supply me with headlights) and then $25 to paint them.

If you want me to do this then add your name to the list:

1.c4justin
2.cycocelica
3.
4.
5.
-------- If i get 6 or more price will be lowered to $20 plus the cost of the headlight.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Edit: I forgot to do the zip code thing, but my zip is 60137, which is Glen Ellyn, IL.

Damn, wish you were around here.

Another thing that you might consider is this:
Instead of having the buyer purchase new headlights, I would say that you charge a bit more but you provide the headlights. Once painted and shipped to the buyer, the buyer then takes off their headlights and ship it back to you.

Seems like paying for the headlights isnt really worth just having them painted. It's not a bad idea but seems like it would be a tad expensive.

it's the easiest way to do it, i bet. who really wants to lose their headlights for a day or two to have 'em painted? and this way he can ship 'em out insted of staying local (not sure if that's what you wanted to do). i might be in.

I would get a pair of headlight from the junkyard paint it with whatever color the customer wants. By the time the customer's set comes in, I shipped it same day priority. Atleast that's how I would do it.
