Yes, it's possible. Click the search button at the top and search for "black housing headlights."

yea man, its really easy, i would suggest the heat gun way, cuz i think i almost melted my headlight clear lense with the oven........its really easy to screw that method up. all you need is black engine enamel spray paint, and a heat gun basicly (paint = $5 tops, heat gun = $20 at walmart).

just paint this part black (you can tape off the corner if you like):


and this is what itll look like:


if you want better pics, just ask, i have more, just not in my photobucket account right now, haha, so if you want em, ill post em.

yea, thats all you have to do, its really easy, the hardest part is taking out that bezel, the part you have to piant black, cuz its a snug fit. heres a couple more pics:





i put that stock one in there last just for comparison to the one above it. after i blackhoused my lights it gave my car such a better look. i think blackhousings give any car, especially accords, a great, sort of aggresive look. ive also done my friends jettas head lights, but that was more of a pain in the ass cuz i had to tape off the whole chrome part that shines the light, but it looks awesome.

And here's my boys gts, he saw how hot mine were coming out and decided to do his:

i didnt tape anything off in mine, that whole piece that i painted, its all on piece.....some peole like to tape off the corner marker, idk, maybe for legal reasons or something, i dont think its illegal, cuz i can still see my corner lights even on the brightest days. and if youre asking about that little chrome piece under the actual headlight, its just screwed onto the back of that piece i painted black. and i didnt leave any orange strip in mine, or a clear one like some people have, i have no reflector in my front headlight........i hope ill pass inspection next year, haha.

yea, theyll fit the stock bulbs. youll be missing out on all of the fun tho, haha, and missing the extra $45 youd save by doing the DIY, haha. i didnt used to want to DIY mine, but i saw this site that was really clear on how to do it. im sure theres a DIY floating around here too.
