What colour did you paint your headlights? Most common will most likely be black but what did you use a gloss/flat/so on please post pictures i have just done my dashboard in bumping coating black (dupli-colour) highly recommended looks great!! I'm thinking of doing my headlight background in the same paint to be honest I think it looks great

But yeah what colour for your background and the chrome rings + pics of you have them!! :)))

Thanks!

I had mine professionally painted black. I had the body shop use the same paint code as the car when it was repainted a Dupont gloss black. Chrome ring delete, just all black. It looks sharp, plus I hate chrome.

The oem charcoal looks best IMO especially if you have the 98 tails as well. If you have the 93-96 tails I guess the black would match that also...but doing the light bezels two different colors from front to back doesn't flow IMO. Depends on the color of your car a bit as well IE a red car vs a silver or black.

I don't disagree with that, but my tails are blacked out with the LED rings, so it's all black all the way around. I'll try to get some pictures this week. I keep my Supra in my warehouse about a half hour away, so It's not readily available for a photo shoot.

Sorry, I haven't been able to make it out to my warehouse yet to get you some pictures. We've had snow and ice storms here the last couple of weeks. I will try to make it out there next week and snap some for you.

Finally a 60 degree day to pull the car out. I snapped a few quick pics for you. Sorry the car is filthy.
Headlamps painted Dupont Super Jet Black to match the car. Chrome rings deleted.

For reference, this is what my old headlamps looked like. Filled with moisture, the original graphite colored paint peeling and OEM style chrome rings.
