I agree black.

But any of the premade projectors you find, they are substandard.

+1

Use your stock housings, and use OEM projectors. When you bake the housings to get them apart, you can polish up the lens and paint the reflector black (or leave chrome) if you want. Alternatively if you dont want to worry about perpetual hazing, you can pick up some cheap aftermarket factory replacement assemblies to put the projectors in. Make sure you read up so all this is done right.

If it's those ebay projector/HID lights, then neither color of them what you want.

No, he wants Rainbow, that way he will never find them, give up, and do his own

The only way to do it and not hate yourself with a lighter wallet later is to go here:

And do it yourself.

I really like the one piece as well. Has anyone taken this housing apart and used higher quality projectors?
