I've wanted to paint the light buckets body color ever since I first saw the mustang. I've asked on several forums but no one has done this yet. Today, I found a fellow mustang owner that actually did it.



He bought a spare set of light buckets just in case. First, he removed the light buckets and the lights.. He then pried the front plastic lens off. This was very difficult as it is glued on very securely. He then had a body shop shoot the light bucket.



He used the original lens and cut a round light filter to fit behind the light bucket and in front of the lamp to protect the bulb and then he put everything back together.



He still has his two original lights and is offering to do this as a service for anyone interested. He says he would charge $1000 with a $200 refundable core charge. After he receives payment, he will ship out his set painted. When the client receives it, they would install the new buckets and then return theirs. As soon as he receives them, he will refund the $200 core charge.



Here is a picture of his car. It was late tonight, so it was dark and the picture did not come out that good. The car looks much better then this. If anyone is interested, PM or email me and I will forward you his contact info.

Yeah. Sure. Here. Take my $1k! I trust this guy. Yep. NOT! One grand for what? For that price you can get some nice HIDs and not some cheesy looking piece-meal bucket. IMHO. :gringreen

I must put in my 2 cents. But theres no way You would use no more than 12 ounces of paint to do it and no more than a couple of hours to take apart, prep and spray. $1000.00 NO WAYI did my BIG 70 Electra and paint,primer and clear was not even 400.00

Just my 2 cents

$1000 are you nuts? Headlights cost $200 for the set at the dealer retail, less than 4oz of paint and your done? You turn you oven on 400 let it sit turn it off put your headlights on a wooden tray let them sit of 5 mins take them out and you can pull them apart? Its simple I did it to remove the reflector in my 03 Dodge Ram 1500. CRAZY IF ANYONE PAYS THAT!
