Aaight, sorry to bug everyone again, but I REALLY REALLY want to do the lights green with circular cut outs... if the holes are as large as i can make them on the lights, and i mirror the inside of the lens, do you think theres a chance it' d still throw enough light?????

I think if I mirror the areas that are green i'll be alright because the light will bounce around until it exits the housing. I already have ultra white lights, so i think it should go smoothly

This might affect your beam pattern though, causing less visibility. But as far as masking it off, trry going to a local sign shop and buying some green vinyl and apply it to your headlights. Then get on the computer and make different size ovals and use those as your templates. That is if you have no luck finding the masking kit.
