Default What color would look better?

So I saw Demon's mod to his head lights the other day and loved the look. Seems like a simple mod a beginner like myself should be able to pull off without disaster.

If I paint my light housings... would white or black look better on my truck? (User photo.)

Also, where could I pick up some clear turn signal housings? Mine are yellow.

Thanks in advance.

I was thinking the same since white might not be very noticeable. But I don't want it to look like theres too much black up front either with the grille and all.

If you want completely clear check out ebay, I think some of the 06+ corners that still have a little orange in them would look better though. As for the headlights, I say white. Your front end already has enough black.

The only white on white I've seen had retrofitted projectors. I think it would look good on regular headlights.

I guess I'll prime it with white before the black and see if I like it that way or not.

Also, this may sound like a dumb question, but is there a specific paint I should use? Will that auto touch up shit that comes in a spray can work fine?

As I stated... newbie here. lol

----------

Or I could just buy the whole shootin match already painted... lol

Yeah just found these

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...ht_5295wt_1167

The shipping is a lot but I think buying them would be better than me risking screwing them up doing it myself.
