I got a 2005 arctic cat 500 and wondering do they make chrome or black headlight covers? also if u can post a link too them that would be great. Finally, what are your opinions on using black spray tint on them?

Best option for spray tinting them is plasti dip smoke. Spray on tint that is removable when you want to with no headlight damage at all

the chrome ones scratch really easy as soon as dirt or dust get between with cover and your headlight

These are the chrome covers that scratched like crazy. I ended up painting them semi gloss black, they are held on with velcro.

I hope Frank doesn't find out you use Velcro !!

If you get Krylon paint for plastic, ( got it at Walmart of all places) you should be all set. it sticks very good to plastic. I did the suspension wheels on my snowmobile w/o any prep and they still look great after one season of riding and they take a ton of abuse from snow/ice. I was impressed at how well they look.
semi gloss looks good on those covers, or you could try to match the color of your quad????
I went with the chrome look for about 2 years, the chrome started to wear off from the back side. Sand-dirt gets behind it and scratches them. So I painted them and they look great, had them for over 6 years now. Just wipe them down with a grease remover, let them dry and spray away<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
