if you paint the chrome inside your light it will kill the light output. you will need to do a projector retrofit then you can run HIDs. you also cant tint the reflector as it is glued to the lense. mask off the leses on the outside so all you see is the reflector and use nightshade on it.

like already stated the reflector is apart of the lense itself, as to take apart the headlight theres numerous threads all over the web for various car/trucks.....all the same process though, heat the light in oven then the lense pulls off. or can try just cuttin the glue with a razor knife

and you linked the thread of my new LED fogs, I think you ment to link this thread
