Thanks for that link,, Which color ones do you have for your fogs?
I wish they had pictures of how the different shades look on a vehichle. I may get the black/out headlights and taillights I want my car to be as dark as possible....

Anybody else have these?

How about these guys. I'm thinking of placing a order with them in the spring. Anyone have any dealings with them or have any feedback on the quality of the product.

I would never tint my headlights with film on the outside. But that's just me. Its much better to black out the inside.

Why not the outside, I can see how applying a film would help with pitting of the headlight. Share your thoughts with this green grasshopper.

any film on the outside of the light will obscure the light so you will see less.

Agreed^^

20% tint will make you see 20% less.
Have you ever had salt from the road on you headlights? Just a little bit can make a huge difference on what you see on the road ahead.

Yes, but only if its a high quality clear invisible film which is different than tinting.

A few clearbra applications actually make the healights look dull/foggy. A good option would be Ventureshield or XPEL clear film if you decide to go that route to protect your headlights.

Tinting will affect light output as mentioned. To me it just doesn't look right. I'm just old school with the buff and polish.

I purchased the yellow covers for my fog lights.

I also have a light blue eurolight tint on my headlights, but I tried removing it and it stained the headlight I dont like how it looks now.

How do i black out the inside? with tint? nightshades (dont think a spray would be good for that, but what do i know?) Will this method still effect the light

I wanted the darker look but you guys are right its not worth risking visibility, even tho I can see everything.. I have my fogs hooked up with hids betwen the fogs, hids, halos. and the amber strip, im good,,,,

the other reason I wanted to dark it out so people can so easily see that I have halo's and the amber strip in there.. but ff that who cares I guess

lol I was about to say i can take care of the headlights for u, but yea you(or me) should defiantly black out the inside it will truly accent the halos alot better. Because the film will tint the lights and the halos so it wont do any good.
