headlights

Do the modified headlights decrease in actuall light on the road? I want to do this mod but I like the amojnt of brightness on the road. I know the chrome projects light more, and when it becomes black, it will produce less light. won't it?

i started this today, i almost didn't do this because of everyone that talked about how hard it was to get the headlights apart, but my headlights came apart really easy, if everything goes this good, this could be the easiest mod ive done yet

Does it decrease the amont of light transmitted onto the street or not? I know it takes away lots of the silver part that reflects the lights so that is why. Let me know!

no, it doesnt effect it. if you look at everybody's pictures you can see that the reflector for the main light is left unpainted. the rest of the 'chrome' is decorative.
