I don't think he wants to try that ( He is like me .we are both Older Farts ) Mine are a 2009 GXP Coupe set . In 2012 when I hit the Guard Rails in NC couldn't get a chrome left Assembly any where so that's how I got mine 235.00 each . Ins paid for them .

Headlights of any sort for the Solstice are incredibly difficult to find. I don't know that you will find black ones unless you strip the chrome but best of luck in your search!

Bob ; My buddy Bill only has about 26,000 miles on his . His is a 2007 Envious Green W/Black top .                                                                                                                                           

"  Headlights of any sort for the Solstice are incredibly difficult to find " Well in 2012 there was a shortage then on lots of parts not only lights .
