i'd assume you would take the outer plastic face off, then mask the insides or something. A quick project before the cruise eh?

Please not another "black sectioned headlight" (??) mod on an EF/EL....

Personally reckon it looks stupid, but if you want to do it the easy way, then buy some headlight protectors, then spray and ruin them instead.

nah all they did was tape it up and spray the section they wanted black, i dont think they would pull the lense off just for that.

To do it properly you need to remove the lens, if you just spray it on the outside it'll look chatty.

Do a search for my thread on it (and also heed the warnings about buggering your lights if you leave them in the oven too long! :lol: )

DONT spray the outside. at best, itll be shiny only on the bits that havent been painted and dull the rest. the pics show the frames inside to be painted. wouldnt that affect the light reflection? leave them as they are...
