Awesome work Mohan![clap]
I always wanted to this DIY in my DZire but at the same time didnt wanted to mess up with the headlight assembly, if they did not sealed back properly. But now the car is sold.
BTW is there any effect in the light throw?
You could have used some LED strips on the bazel and used them as DRLS!

Thanks everyone.

Only the bezels are painted. So there's no change in light throw and illumination.
And I'm not a fan of LED strips. Moreover the LED strips, we get here looks much cheaper.[angry]

I've painted the headlamp bezel of my Swift black. Here are the pictures.

The bumper is removed first to unscrew the headlamp assy.

Headlamp assy. removed.

The bezel was attached to the assy. with the help of two screws.

The silicon gum was softened by blowing hot air at the edges(300- 400 degrees). Then a flat-tip screw driver was used to open the headlamp assembly.
