i was also thinking that the other day because they don't make clear headlight lenses for my car and was considering painting them or just tiniting them very dark.

Yeah dont do it unless you dont intend on driving at night. If you cant find regular head light covers for your car then you can get clear and tint those..with any style you want...*Eye Brows*

It'll work, but it will chip off from normal road wear. Won't take long to look bad, even if you don't get a ticket or loose too much light.

You could use it on your headlights, BUT WHY??? You could NEVER drive the car at night ever again if you did, due to no light coming through to see where you were going!

But if you want to see what it looks like on Tail lights....Check out page two of my Cardomain page here >>>> http://members.cardomain.com/deathrat

If you want to paint headlight covers, paint the insides, 94sse suggested that for the next time someone or he does something similar to his eyebrows, then it wont chip off.

"Black Out" tape will accomplish the same effect too.
