painted headlights

i really like the look
but i suck at painting and such thumbsdown
my headlights are pretty beat too (chips, scratches all over idk what's up with that, and overspray)
so it was a good experience, but i'll be buying new black housing headlights from Toyota soon (the color coded black ones for black action package celicas)
if that's possible to get

but yea tell me what you think!

taking my front bumper off took me forever
i have never seen such poor labor on this thing when i had the bodyshop install it
half the bolts were different and the ones holdin the corner on weren't even the same as stock, and i had about three messed up engine plastic clips
so i gotta get the new headlights, more clips, new bolts definately, and the Sidemarker bulb assembly all in due time for spring and Trial kit.
and boy it's dirty! rofl

wow, looks nice billy. did the chips give you a problem with laying down the paint? because it looks pretty damn good from the pics, but i was wondering if it looks differently in person.

the chips are on the outside, not the inside spineyes

nah, i'm just not a good painter and the krylon fusion was a very thin paint, so it was hard
then when reheating, some paint got on the inside of the plastic
i'm a has to be perfect person so those little things bother me.
