Maybe he's from canada?

Anyway, nice color, it should respond well to carbon fiber, atleast thats what I would do. Anyway, I'm assuming it has a Z6, and I'm sure you know what I would do to it. Good luck, How much did you get it for?

If I had a nickel for every time I assumed my USDM Honda knowledge applied worldwide, but didn't, I'd be a fucking millionaire by now.

Nice ride dude.

to smoke:

remove headlights
pop them in the oven to heat up the seal
pop off the lense
spray paint all the mirrored surfaces with a THIN coat of black
silicone-seal the lense back on
reinstall

[edit] I didn't think it was necessary but maybe I should add this - take out your bulbs! mask anything that you don't want painted.

Yeah just make sure that you don't paint the reflector part or else your light output will be very weak looking. I've seen a few people make this mistake and they either have to buy a new headlight or take all the paint off with paint thinner. Other than that... exactly what scottigee said. Make sure it's a light coat. You can even throw them back in the oven after you paint them (well that's what I did) to bake the paint on. :tu

that's a good point - I shouldn't have said "paint all the mirrored surfaces"


with 6th gens the reflector bowl can come out seperate from the part you want to paint though, eg's are one piece, so it must be masked.

You can paint the whole thing, but there is only one way to do that..... :D

take the clear plastic cover (lense) off the housing
paint it
then put the lense back on...no switching.
