Painted my 2013 headlight

Had the condo to myself since the fiancee is house sitting for a friend. Decided to take advantage of her absence and paint one of my 2013 headlights. I am very happy with how they turned out. I know it's no Retro Solution's job, but for a rattle can job I am quite pleased.

Snakeskin green and brilliant black...

Ok....#1, now I'm pissed that I don't have my brackets back (projector swap) - LOL - I wanted the first set of custom '13s out there. (not that I have time to work on my own stuff right now though!)

2 - thats pretty SLICK! I like what you did with the shroud there too.

and YES, tint that side reflector.

You snooze, you lose my friend You could have stopped this by not being a great guy and answering my PMs when I was having issues getting them baked apart.

Truth is, I kind of 'borrowed' the idea from another set you did, so I give you credit for the idea. All that masking off was a complete PITA though, I don't know how you do it

I was going to tint the reflector, and I still might, but the more I look at it the more I kind of like how it is right now. These will be open for a few more weeks, just waiting for a halo set from AAC. Sounds like I'm going to be their first set of '13 RGB halos, so we'll see how it goes.

They're going onto an '09 sport. The truck will be receiving a two-tone paint job in the near future, the brilliant black on the bottom and viper snake skin green on top.

That will surely look incredible. I love that green and with splitting it with the black your truck will look nice. Is it going to be lowered or lifted? Details. Details...

Lol, it's a bone stock '09 sport QCRB 4wd right now, but the parts list that's building up in my storage room is long. I'm will be starting a build log as soon as the weather gets better and I can actually get outside and do some of the many mods I have to go on. But some highlights are a 2/4 drop; complete Spohn adjustable suspension; 22" wheels w/ NT420 rubber; forged 349ci block w/ Arrignton ported heads; ARH headers; NOVI 1200 s/c; MGH built tranny; 2-tone paint; APM hood; custom heads and fogs; custom green BT stuff everywhere; and a whole lot more. I have a moddiction and am building this truck up to blow away my old '07 QCRB show n' go truck.
