You never spray the glass.

And no stock CB lights come blackhoused. The procedure is the same for all.

Yes, however if you have a set of one piece headlights i wouldnt recommend doing this DIY because one piece headlights are usually pretty dope to begin with.

but if you did want to then yes its essentially the same thing. just be watchful for the oven times, the taping, and the yellow highbeam.

taping would be a little more difficult considering you may not know what to tape exactly. Just always leave the reflective part behind the bulb chrome and you shouldnt have an issue.

also some one piece headlights have a chrome lip around them which may not be possible to remove without damaging it. Im unsure but i wouldnt mess with those.

ya it definitely is a bad idea which is why i said use a spare set and that it was a sketchy alternative.

i dont recommend using painted bulbs as a reliable function just because the integrity of the bulb is compromised when it heats up.

im doing it because i was so excited i finished my project that i decided to use my spares to get more of the yellow effect.

In your case, I think it would be easier to just apply yellow vinyl film to the high beam side, instead of opening them up and spraying them. Kinda tacky in my opinion, but it works.
