Default Headlight Blackouts

Would blackout'* stop light from going through? or does the light go directly through like it would without the covers.

You'll need to take them off at night, light doesn't really show thru them. THey'll light up, but they don't project. If you're driving in fog it'll help, but if you get em, take em off for lights.

i had them for my 95 and i did NOT have to take them off at night.. turn on ur fog lights and you are straight. The only time you really don't wan 'em on is winter.. bad times. With the fog lights on you will have no problems.

Cops will pull you over for it. Fog lights don't go very far either.

Are they illegal in MN Jason? Or are you just talking about at night you'd get pulled over?

Maybe some Driving Lights would be better if you get the blackouts. They are much better than the dull fogs.
