I decided to try somethin different.
So here's what I did:

*1*Silver housing
*2*Painted the chrome projector bezel black w/ chrome rings
*3*Double-tinted the side amber reflectors.
-First, I used reflective mirror tint film (same type used for windows)
on the amber reflector.
-Second, I applied 20% tint ON TOP of the mirror tint.

The amber reflector is awesome! I like BDI's idea of having it silver, and JaTe's of having it smoked. So I came up with a way to have both at the same time. In some angles it looks silver (which matches the silver housing and silver car) and other times it looks like a dark gunmetal which matches the newly painted black projector bezel.

Overall....I'm glad I didn't get the JDM lights. Let me know what ya'll think of the new headlights!

They're actually not that hard to open.
You get really good at it after doin it for a while. I ended up REDOING them AGAIN just now b/c the tint on the amber wasn't cut straight (which was slowly startin to piss me off) and I accidentally chipped the inner housing, so I had to repaint that piece.

Here are some better pics.
