How do they install? I want to get rid of the chrome headlight look, and I dont see any other headlights out yet, and I don't have the time nor I trust myself to take apart the headlights...cuz if I screw them up, not only will they look like ass, I dont have money to replace them. LOL
So I thought I'd do headlight covers for now......

Does anyone have them? Or pictures or anything?

There's lots of kinda, some attach with two sided 3M tape, others are just vinyl (sticker) and some people actually get them painted on.

Nah, there are others, not sure what is all out for the 2005's but there are a bunch of different ones for the 2000-2004 models. There's a couple people on here kicking around with them on their 2005 models. I'm sure they will post eventually.....

those look pretty nice...
I have a black grill and the chrome in the headlights looks tacky as it is now. I'm going to get the JDM black clear corners from ebay, and I wanted to do something black-ish with my headlights. I hear the stick ons like AVS and the like aren't the greatest, so I'm looking for other options. I wonder if anyone would be willing to paint my headlights black inside if I sent some to them..haha

There is a how-to in this forum that tells you how to paint the chrome bezel on the headlights to whatever paint color you want. Then you can finish it off by putting some eyelids on to give it a meaner look.

Here is my headlight (without the turn signal.. whoops [:D] )

yeah I know there is a how to for that.... but I'm not really trying to put my headlights in the oven hahaha. I'd probably screw it up real bad..do you have to sand inside the headlight or do you just put 1 or 2 coats of paint on, and call it a day?

yeah alot of sanding if you want the paint to look good and not run everywhere lol but its not that bad i did it and painted eyelids on the out side also it is just time time time is all it took me from 9am to 7pm from start to finish and you have to let the sealant cure also but is worth it in the end
