Default Stealth Bulbs

Well I was going to buy a pair of Stealth Bulbs for my car but Stealth Auto - where the bulbs are made, want $71 after shipping for them. And I don't like ebay, have been screwed twice on there.

And since automotive parts dealers here carry them. What stores in the states carry them so if I go to the Minnesota meet in June I can pick some up?

What an absolute ripoff. Spray paint standard amber bulbs with a light coat of silver spraypaint for the same effect. Betcha 10 bucks (US) that'* all they're doing.

they actually look like they have a mirror tint on them and since there is no light turned on inside when they are off they look solid.

Yup.

And just like everyone here with clear corners, they spray-painted them silver (mirror tint) so you can't see the amber when they're off. But you do when they're on.

Try a search.

And you can buy 6 cans of spray paint for that. And do your own 50 times.

I'd like to stand the owner of Stealth Bulbs up in front of the entire car-modding community (including several southern CA lowriders with full-body tattoos and Florida import tuners with very large muscles and drug problems to match) and show him a can of chrome spray paint and a generic 3 dollar bulb.

ok I bought some chrome paint (actually silver) when I did my under hood painting. I'll see what it will do.

(this is where those who have gone into the unkown before and survived jump to the aid of the clear corner/painted bulb noob and save a life and an innocent bulb by sharing their tips/tricks/techniques/beer)
