    Black Accord would go nicely with the black housing.

    it really only takes 3 hours max to do... and most of that time is spent waiting for your oven to heat up, and watching paint dry. :beer:

    Re: Blackhoused headlights or just housings painted or not (preffered) needed ASAP

    Its really really simple, paint drying is the longest, and the oven. There are diy for removing a front bumper...it's simple if you have the 4 or 5 hours to do it, pick a sunday or something.


    I would offer, but I'm a grocery getter. What are the condition of the plastic housing on your lights? Pictures might help somebody if they see that yours aren't jacked up nicked, scruffed etc.

    you found housings or headlights? I just restored my lenses with the 3M restoration kit. they look brand new.
