Black housed Headlights

So on a FAQ I was told to use high heat paint. Can I use any type of paint and coat it over with engine gloss enamel?

Yes they are at the moment. However I am considering 3 things to go along with the blackhousing: I'm leaning towards option C but for the life of me, can't find the person who did them on here.

A) White/Cool Blue LED daytime Lights.


B) Amber LED lights to accompany the turn signals like Young r. tune did


C) Take the bulb out of the strip completely and use a brighter bulb on the sides

Don't remember who did this but they had a lighter yellow bulb which was much brighter and used em for day running lights.

I reverse my LED light so it shines inwards. That way it looks like DRL.
