i dont think the cops will say anything to me... you can still see it blink. there is riceburners around here that have like blue corner lights, mine should be fine i think.
the flash makes my car look teal but in the light its green, but once i fix the fender, gas door and rear bumper cover i'm getting it painted that dark green from the 00+ bonnevilles

My cars play funny color tricks at night, too. Mostly in parking lots.

Make sure that light is clearly visible. I personally don't like the look, as it doesn't really 'flow' with the rest of your car.

Main problem you'll have is there is no reflective material visible now...

What about chipping? Legality?

Your headlights are going to take some serious road abuse.
