Question Blacked out headlights

A question to all you people who have your headlights blacked out, where did you take them to get it done?

I am worried about doing it myself on this one, putting your headlights in the oven and then painting them is something I probably won't feel very comfortable doing myself.

its easy, just pulled mine apart for the first time last night. Put them on a cookie tray but preheat the oven without the cookie tray in it and you'll have no problems. 5-10mins in there at 200 will work just fine.
