has anybody done the headlight mod a different color than black? if someone could do a photoshop of some other colors, that would be awesome! maybe white, red, blue, yellow (?), pink (to match the engine fan color!), etc, etc...

Blue (to go with Speedway Blue) has been proposed more than once before, and I *think* there's been at least 1 PhotoShop illustration of what it'd look like ...

For those of you with SWB trucks, check out headlightarmor.com for some blue film for your lights. They have a picture of a blue FJ with it on, and it looks nice.

This way there's no need to rip your headlights apart.

Couldn't you get a spraycan of paint matched to your truck if you go to a car paint shop and give them the paint number for it?

I've heard of Tundra members at TS doing this for painting their bumpers and such. Sounds like the same principle would apply for the headlight mod. That would look incredible on a RR and SWB X.

Did you clear coat or just purchased the paint in a spray can and paint the lights?

That white-on-white mod looks great!.... :waytogo: :applause:

Then again - that application has a lot more visible 'surface area' to show off the color than is the case for the 2005+ Tacomas ... :thinking:

How did you get and apply the paint?

i used automotive paint and sprayed it with a paint gun and i removed the lens and used nightshade on the turn signal lens,i think it turned out nice, everyone at the local dealership liked it when i went in to buy the obx pedals.thanks for the positive comments.
