i would not do that...you night vision will be decreased by alot, and it might be against the law in your area to have a 'cover' or a tint on the headlights

IMO I think if you masked off circles for the lights to shine through and tint the rest, I think you could get away with that, I would do that to my car but the weather is shitty.
