Default Black Headlights

Anyone paint the inside of your headlights black?

I have a graphite metallic car, which is fairly dark, and cannot find pictures anywhere with this done on a dark vehicle, only on light cars.

Here's an image if anyone wants to know what I'm talking about...

I just today painted mine!! They look good. Messed up first time but re did it again! Use kryon lense tint. I think that's what it is! It gives a wonderful final layer. 3 coats and about 2 hours of taping the light and body and not even half a bottle of the paint and it's perfect!

I know yours is not, but 2006 and up you can not open the headlights to paint. I did my 04' easily but the wifes 06' are glued down hard and heat makes no difference unlike the stuff that softens up on the 1st. generation.
