How to black out headlights
Take the headlights out of the car. You don�t have to remove the bumper you can reach the bolts with it.

To open the headlight you can use a heat gun. I recommend using a heat gun. It is so easy to manage.
Use the heat gun at level 1 and start heating one side of the headlight (for example the upper part). Heat it like 1 minute and have the heat gun like 5-10 cm from the headlight.
Start prying the section you heated. After you pry the upper part a little repeat the same method with the lower part. Go again to the upper part and heat it again and pry. Pry until you get them almost apart.
When you are about to take them apart just heat all the edge of the headlight and then with your hands take them apart. Just pull them apart, it should be easily.
Set aside the reflector part.
Unscrew the trim and unclip it from the plastic cover. Take out the trim.
Now remove the orange reflector from the trim. Be careful not to break any clip. If you break more than 1 clip use some glue to secure it when you close the headlight again.
You can�t take apart the reflector of the turn signal, so use masking tape to cover it or just paint it all black.
You can wet sand the chrome off. I used 400 sand grit paper.
I painted the trim flat black and the orange reflectors gloss black. You don�t have to use high temp paint. Paint it any color you want. Make sure you read the instructions at the back of the spray can. Although I painted the orange reflector black, if I were to do it again I would get a can of nite shades and just smoke it then apply clear coat over it. If you paint the orange reflector by the rear part of it, it will look glossier.
Let the paint dry.
Remove the masking tape from the reflector. Clean everything very well. Put back the orange reflector and the trim. If you have compressed air use it to clean the inside of the headlight.
To seal it put the headlight back again just as when you pulled them apart.
Heat one side of the headlight (just like when you pry it) and when it is hot push them back as hard as you can. Repeat the process with the other side and then repeat it until you see it is good together.
I used some black high temp silicone all over where you pry. Just to make sure it had a good seal.
After sealing it I placed some shop towels where the turn signal bulbs and the halogen bulbs were and let them absorb all the moisture that could be inside the headlight. Leave them like that about 2 hours.
Reinstall the headlights onto your car.
