    Is it really hard to take out the orange reflectors on the head lights?

    You gota stick them in the oven, bake them a bit, pry them apart, then pop out the orange lens.

    So, no it's not hard, you just don't want to melt them.

    I'm too chicken to do it.:LOL:

    I heard Berto is good at it.

    youll have a big hole if all you do is take them out... you have to get a clear piece to take its place... i believe people just make it themselves... i bought mine on the org
    if you want a quick fix look into the bat overlays... they are a black tint that go on the outside of the housing

    I didnt want to start a new thread and this is kinda related, but can you do the same thing with the red peice in the rear clear tails? I think that would look sharp!

    I painted my side front reflectors also, no problems with view-ability at night.

    As for the rear reflector you could paint it black if you took the taillight apart or you could replace it with the reflector from the red tails which has a clear reflector.
