Orange bulbs glow orange all the time. They don't have a magic coating. LOL. I'll mention just for knowledge sake. Those bulbs must be orange in every state by Fed DOT. Actually removing the reflective
orange plastic as you do when clearing corners violates DOT law. By putting the orange bulb in you merely reduce the chance of being pulled over. If you put clear in there without the orange reflector you have removed, your begging for being pulled over and the whole car and yourself scrutinized, and ticketed. In some individualized areas, they have even gone to towing such cars away. But hey, it'* America. Do and disregard the laws as you please. It is a free country, till Statey flips the lightrack on behind you. And in NY and PA of which I have alot of experience, it'* best to use your right to remain silent.
