From Chrome to Black - Coupla Qs
I plan to change my headlight surround to black, and my clocks too.
With the headlight, I'm assuming it's chromed metal (not plastic) and I can get it powdercoated? Can anyone confirm this, and also, not having disassembled a light like this since I ruined the wiring on my old Hornet - how do you remove the rim?
On the clocks, I saw on another thread (thanks Weeksy) that the chrome surrounds can be completely removed by bending a small tab on one side of each surround, and pulling. Weeksy posted a link to a pic that showed how it looks underneath, but it wasn't on mounted clocks, just the fascia, so my question is; has anyone just pulled these off and left them off, and does it look ok, or are there any ugly grooves or exposed bits? Alternatively, I could also get these powdercoated.
