Default New lights

I installed my new headlights on the weekend, I can actually see now.
I cleared the corners and painted the new signal bulbs with clear red paint. I also changed the inside (parking) lights and did those in red.
The drivers side headlight looks like its a little brighter in the pic?. My next step is to get brighter blue fogs.

Hrm red parking lights, not far from yellow, and not nearly as noticeable as blue. Nice!

Had same ones like you and ended up in police station testing for alchol and than paying 92$ for using anothorized lights on my car. Only thing if you have alot of money to pay that is cool. Lol

Nice!! I was JUST thinking today about making mine red. I MIGHT clear my corners, and if I do I'll make them red along with the inside ones. Did you paint the inside bulb too, or do they make red replacement ones of those bulbs? I like the red, gives it a meaner look I think.

I may be asking for even more attention from cops, maybe I'll just have to be a bit more careful. If I see a cop facing the front of me I won't use my directionals I changed my rear signals to red but at least those are legal.

I painted em all. I found green, purple, blue and black (ultra violet?) for the insides they had clear and amber for the corners. I need to get a brighter bulbs for the fogs to even the light with the silverstars. Hopefully the police dont mind the lights to much I would hate to take them out. I'v seen quit a few cruisers in the city they didnt seem to mind, the highway may be a different story.

Baron, grab some Hella Optilux Angel Eyes if you don't mind spending $50. The 55W driving lights are very bright (same watts as Silverstar low beams) and of course you get the nice blue tinted ring too.


Here'* a pic with my silverstars and the Hella Driving Lights/angel eyes
