as i recall it would mess with your visibility. if you want to blackout the headlights get some smoked covers. i dont know where to get em though....let a guru handle it.

I wouldnt recommend it. At least with the blackout you could take them off when you wanted/needed to. Plus if you paint them theyll chip just like the front end of your car does. Get a small flake or crack in it go to wash it & it could turn into a mess.

VHT on the headlights.....bad idea.

VHT on the taillights, cool idea. Looks damn good to the people behind me as I pull away.

HELP! Help! We're being oppressed!!

Seriously, tho, you'd definitely want to check the legality of this idea as well. Some places outaw even the smoked covers.

Here in MN you can have them during the day, but once you need your lights, for rain, night etc, you have to have them off. Same with the Rear.

Oh i pull away from people to with my tinted tail lights, and they see them a lot!
