Default 04-05' - Cleared Headlights -> Body Color Housing?

Alrighty, ive seen you guys clearing them out and some paiting them black, but has anyone painted the housing the color of the body? IE WRB or Java Black?

Im currently driving a 3000GT and it's projector headlight surroundings are body-colored, which give it a neat look...


Anyone try this yet, or have pics?

Try a search in the pic forum.

Remember the impreza lights are alot larger than 3KGT lights, so it may not look so good...

i bet it would look ok...
but i know that the 04 celica got body colored headlight housing and it's ugly

i think it only looks good on darker cars..such as the black.
