Looks awesome, but I don't like the lens clear. Couldn't you tint them or something similar to get no reflections for when you take pictures? Like complete stealth?

i started to do this tonight. i figured taking the headlights out in the dark wouldn't be much of a problem. but i have the SAP and it looks like the whole front bumper has to come off to get the headlights out. can anyone verify that for me?

Now it is time to do it to some 2008 Headlights I am on my 5th set of 05-07 headlights and got it pretty down pat, but i want to play with some newer headlights, who is gonna open their lights first

This is one of the first I did

Just think of this with blacked out headlights

so i have had this idea since i first saw the painted lights

the idea is buy a set of the chrome halo HID projector lights from ebay but instead of just painting them black (cuz you can just buy them like that) get that spray tint and cover up the main parts to remain chrome and TINT the rest, give it that kinda smoked look?

thoughts on how this would look or work?

HELP!! I just did this mod and I just noticed my lights fogged up. Well not fogged up, but condesation filled them up. It was a clod night. I did a seamless job when applying the silicon.

Anyone have any ideas why this would happen? Are these lights suppose to be vented?
