You can paint them yourself. No need to buy 'em, however there are some on ebay.com. Take out the headlights from the car and then put them in the oven and you'll be able to take off the plastic lens and paint the reflector housing.

No! Your lights can't be reflect and you won't able to see anything. Unless you swap projectors in there.

WTF? Isn't just the sides the same as your first question?

But to answer your question, it isn't cheap. You have to get solonoid kits (Remotes and things that pop your doors open). I think a kit costs around 400-1000$. Search a little. It has been done by some members. ;)

I was planning to do that but is there enough housing on the camry, so that once it's done- the lamps still work correctly?

meaning if I did the housings it wouldn't turn out correctly because the lamps would be blocked with the housing and no light would be able to come though?

Hm....For some reason when i thought about this, 400 popped into my head immediatly. Then upon further thinking i wrote the 1000 so i wouldn't sound like a dumbass if i was too low. :lol:

I have never really been a big fan of ebay. From all the horror storys i've heard from them, i try to stay away as much as possible.

Yes. If your headlights were 00-01 then you can buy the aftermarket with the black housing. (even thought they're not really black housing)
