I think it looks bad ***. How do they look at night with the lights on?

Thanks for the replies!!! I think I will definitely do it now. I had no idea I'd get this many good responses. I have the clear covers and will be making them and the eyebrows ASAP. I'll post the pics when they're done. I have another Photoshop pic with the lights on which will give you an idea of what it may look like with the lights on. I'll prob. post this and some different ideas and see what people like best. I have my car color so it will look sweet.

Hell, if anyone wants some custom light covers, I'll be glad to do them for you. You can let me know if you want. Stay tuned for more pics...

Thats not half bad actually. Just make the bigger holes a little smaller next time and your game.

Thank God for Photoshop! I probably won't go with the ones in the pic. I'll do a bunch of different designs so I get the best one. I'll run a poll after I get a few designs done.

I do not know if it would make a difference on how much light is put out with the covering but you could probibaly could put reflectivetape or ues some cheep crome paint on the inside where light will not excape. The reson for this is the light would be bounced back and could excape through the opening so you would increase the amount of light that would be excapeing.

I'll check to see how much escapes after I paint them. If it is cut down a lot, I'll try the reflective tape on the inside. That'* not a bad idea. Thanks
