Painting the inside of any 2005+ headlight

I've seen some in magazines and at shows but how do they it. After its painted do they reseal it with epoxy or silicone? I want to do mine in my body color and little slits in red. But i want to get OEM HID Ford headlight and they are little expentive to be chopping up not sure if there are some you can buy pre-done or what. Please help me

Re: Painting the inside of any 2005+ headlight

It is not that hard to take them apart and reseal. I've done it to my friends' cars but it is pretty universal. The way I did it was I took the headlight housing off the car and then put it in the oven at about 300 degrees for 10 minutes. I then pulled it open by hand (obviously with gloves) then cleaned out the old sealant and then put on new sealant. I used black RTV silicone on one and clear on the other car, whichever looks better. Not difficult at all
