If you want black headlights, black them out yourself.... you already have the paint, all you would need to buy extra (if you don't have it) is clear silicone.

That grille looks great! I hate how the honeycombs always fade and look like crap. That paint job really stands out on the yellow. Good job.

I pulled my grill out today and used a wire brush to knock off the oxidation (my arm was more tired than when I was 15). I cleaned in between each of the honeycombed parts, there are about 250 but who is counting. Then I sprayed it black. Now it is black on black and looks great. Should have taken some pics but didn't. That crappy Ford gray had faded real bad and had to go. Hardest part is getting the grill off the truck.

just to my grill out to paint, what paint did you use? was it the fusion flat black or would a gloss black look better?
