I think I have seen people paint all the chrom but the little cones that reflect the light from the bulb... not positive though... use the search if you haven't already I am sure there is something on there for them good luck

When I had my SVT focus i did this to the factory HID headlamps....it's very involving. It was tough to pull apart a set of $1000 headlamps...

Yeah I've seen that "how to" before. I think you're on the right track though. All the chrome goes except for the light cone interiors and the reflectors. You should also try the search feature over on DTR, I think that's where it is. I'll see if I can find the link.

Right on brother!

I haven't done either yet. DTT is training the guys from Vulcan Performance. I think I'm gonna get a DTT. Just haven't pulled the trigger. As far as the fuel supply, I'm leaning towards just a pump to the stock fuel filter with a Baldwin 7977 then to a CAT 2 micron, then to the CP3 with 1/2" line throughout.

Been thinking about this headlight mod too! Have you checked out cheapbay. You can get a spare light to practic on for about $40-50. It's gonna look sweet!:thumbsup:
