Painted '95 headlights?

Sorry guys, I know the whole "paint inside the headlight" thing has been talked about quite extensively, but...
I haven't seen where anyone has done it to anything other than the 96/97 style. Is this because the '95s would look silly? I just bought a set of clears from Big Mike and and am wondering how they would look. I just don't know. Any Photoshoppers out there want to take a stab at it?

someone on here did it, but you can't really tell, due to the fact that the 94/95 lights aren't clear enough to see inside and really notice it.

yeah, mike (porkchop) did it and it didnt turn out that well. i happen to have the set that he painted in my possession it may look better to tint the backside of the lens instead. ill take some pics later and post them up.

Hey Big Mike, I thought that the set that you are sending me is clear. Or is it that they are still not as clear as the '96/'97? Do you think you could post a pic of those, too? Don't worry, I still want 'em. "The check is in the mail."

My old '94








Not really good pics, but i never really focused on the headlights when i took these pics, by the way, this is painted on the outside, i just masked em off and sprayed em, took a long time to tape em up but it was worth it, looked really mean

Please enjoy my new and improved short signature- Russ

yea you can do a search on the headlights painted black and you'll find a couple posts by me..yes it gave them a tinted look but seeing how the lenses arent see through like the 96+ lights it just looked different...kinda cool...come angles it looked tight and very tinted...then other angle looked yellow cuz of lenses being dirty...

if you want to paint headlights i recommend jus to do thr 96+ headlight conversion on your 95..looks very nice and paint the inside of the 96+ lights black...*well the bottom reflective part only* and it will look twice as better





well here is a pic of the black painted 96+ light...which one looks better?
