Default Completely blacked out headlights?

Anybody have pics? I went through the whole custom headlight thread and nada. Completely as in the turn signal reflectors and highbeam cup reflectors...

06/07 preferred.

Thanks.

Why would you paint the reflectors on your high beams? I don't understand why people paint the things that effect the output of their lighting.

I blacked out my headlights but only because I installed projectors. I wouldn't black them out if you're going to leave you regular bulbs/reflectors in, you would get horrible light output.

I thought about this before, if you put projectors in the high beams, painted the reflectors, and used LEDs in the turn signals/markers you could completely black out the entire headlight including the reflectors. Never seen it done on a 06/07, but that 04 above me looks really nice. May have to do that once I get a retrofit.

If you must... don't black out reflectors, you should get a laminate to put over the outside of the lens.
