White headlight trim?

I'm curious as to how my car would look with the headlight trim painted to match the body color. Has anyone seen it done? I'm open minded so be honest, you won't hurt my feelings if you say "NO WAY".

Roll with me here, blackout the entire front except for the headlights. Paint the etire grill piece black and tint the turn signals. I think that would look really fresh on the alpine white.

I think that might actually look ok. I have a set of 17" style 32s getting refinished for it but the guy doing the powdercoating is taking his sweet time. I can't really complain since he's doing them so cheap.

I think that would look pretty cool. Go for it!
