Gosh. Just did this mod 2 nights ago!
I swear, I WILL NEVER TAKE THE HEADLIGHTS APART AGAIN!
it wasn't much of a pain to get them apart, but sure did used a bit of muscles. Putting them back in is a PITA.

I didn't buy Krylon paint either. I got some spray paint from Home Depot. Which is supposed to be used on Wood, Metal etc, but head resistant though.

The first layer I sprayed was a complete failure. Even after I sand the bracket, the paint just won't stay on it. But after 3-4 coating, it is beautiful. Complete black right now.

These 2 days have been snowing like there is no tomorrow, and I notice a bit of water vapour in them. I think I'm just going to bare with it until summer, when I will use hair dryer to blow them dry.
