Ive recently read the 'joey mod' with the bora headlights sprayed black on the chrome outer pars but i want to go all black like these http://www.inprolights.co.uk/bora-inpro-clear-black-headlights-p-244.html (these are for LHD only)

Everything black excluding the fog/indicator lens and the main chrme headlight bowl.

Will there be any problems as regarding the light beam being affected if i spray everything black.?

Painting the reflective cones will severely affect the light output, I wouldn't do it
Good job he's not asking that then [facepalm]

No, it will be fine if you paint them like the ones in the link, just don't stick any masking tape to the reflector or the surface may stick to the tape when you take it off.

Ive wanted to do this to mine, or find something very similar to those Inpro's. but seems there is nout around. I found a website with loads and loads of Bora headlamps but it was an American site so LHD. Just cant seem to find the choice over here! Did you spray the interiors black?
