DIY Paint

Hey, I want to paint my headlights and put some blue lights in them. I know I have to use high heat paint, but I am clueless when it comes to matching paint and I need to know what brand or product should I use for nighthawk black? I dont want to get some really dark black and it looks off a lil bit.

you don't really need high temp paint.. lights don't get that hot. if you wanted to match.. maybe get the factory paint? or get semi glossy so it would look like it's not supposed to match..

This doesn't help me.


Also, it does matter what black I get. Hondas is very different and I can't just go out and get the factory paint... I cant get anywhere but Honda and it's WAAAAYYY too expensive. I need other options. Please
