Default Question about clearing headlights

If I were to take out the orange in my 2000 SSEi headlights, would I have to replace the bulb or do anything to cover it at all for other driver conditions?

Yes, most replace the bulb with a silverstar turn signal light. They are primarily silver in color when off and light up a perfect amber in day or night.

silverstar turn signals, what the look like off. Don't replace with a regular amber bulb because from a distance it doesn't look like you cleared the corners.
