My friends and I got really ambitious the past few days and we decided to black out my Explorer. Here are a few pictures.

Bought blacked out headlights on eBay, put some 6K HIDs in them, and "Hyper White" Hi-beams which look stupid with the blue tint, but what can ya do. We also painted my grille black, and tinted my emblem slightly. I also painted the Fire Department symbol black in the middle.

They came with a silver rim around the edges so we painted it black.

We masked off the moldings on the side and painted them black.

We painted the "Tailgate Eyebrow" black, along with the rear emblem. I also tinted my tails and masked off the reverse light.

Decided to paint them too lol.

This took a really long time to mask off but I think it was so worth it.
