Default Need headlamp mod help

Does anyone know some safe instructions on how to paint the inside housing on the GC8 headlamp? I have a black car and I think it would look pretty bad ass. Wondering if anyone could help me out a little before I started. Not necessarily the corners, but around the actual headlight. Something like this...

Put the headlights in the oven @ 300 F for a few minutes. They pry them apart. Tape everything off and paint, then let dry for enough time. Get some clear silicon sealant and put the lights together - make sure you don't touch the inside of the lens and everything is clean.

Thanks for the help and the quick response! Do you think I would have a problem with getting moisture inside the housing?

I did it on my WRX about 6 months ago and not a drop of moisture. But I did use an entire tube of silicone for both lights just to make sure I had no leaks.

Its a real easy mod to do.
