Hello,

I am about to try the DIY headlights that everyone has been doing. My question is, what would happen if you dont mask over where the reflectors snap in and just paint it? I assume that it'll only make the reflectors a little darker than if you would mask it off becuase of the chrome backing. I am undecided whether to mask it off or not. Anyone have pictures so that I can compare?
thanks!

I don't have pics of mine but I did not tape up the parking light section on mine and it looks quite nice.. The only thing is when I have the parking lights on all you see is the light bulbs instead of having that whole section light up... I'll try to get some pics this weekend and post them for ya.

I forgot to mask off the side reflector piece, but it still reflects fairly well. I covered up the other two places. I personally think it looks a little better if you do mask off the reflective areas...especially the turn signal part. But it's not that big of a deal...
