Looking to Paint My Headlights. Help.

Hey guys, I'm looking to paint the headlights black like some of you guys have already done (To resemble the Harley Davidson Edition). i had a spare headlight laying around and used that as my test light to try and separate it. i failed quite bad. i did it using a heat gun rather than putting it in a oven just b/c i thought that the gun may be easier to work with. Wrong. But anyway i was wondering if you all know of any shops in my area that would do the painting for me? I'm located in Severn, MD. I'm willing to take them wherever i need to, as long as i know they'll be done right.

So any help, recommendations, or info is gladly appreciated.

Yeah should of put in oven. Search on here there is a great write up on how to do it. I followed it and mine turned out great. If not there is a company on here that does them but they are not in maryland.

I paint headlights on the side for money during college. You can use the oven or the heatgun. I prefer heat gun and butyl tape to seal them back up.
