Can i order the chrome rings in the headlight?

So i got my headlights painted at a local headlight shop and when he touched the chrome ring on the inside it smeared and then he sprayed it with a chrome paint from home depot so it looks like garbage. It doesn't bother me too much but i was wondering can i order them separately?

Looks good.



Looks good? eh.. not so much.

I highly doubt that part can be purchased on its own

Doesnít look perfect but I donít think I would EVER notice that if I wasnít looking for it. To me it would be more of an issue of the headlight shop doing a shoddy job. I would ask for at least a partial refund if you havenít already

It would require re-opening the headlight. I would've had them redo it even if it cost $45.

Hey, so question. Are the LED parking lamps replaceable in these bad boys? Thinking of changing to a different color because why not? Haven't gone and looked under the hood quite yet and all my searches turn up the standard parking lamps.

Parking lamps as in the small halogens you can swap to LEDs, or the Xenon housings in 2012+ that have the limp rope of LEDs inside?

If yes to the first, yes.


If yes to the second... yes, but with a shit load of soldering and work.
