I just have to research how to modify the stockers and keep the light output somewhat useful.
I know people use the VHT Nightshade, and other tinted paint products, to tint their headlights, side markers, and taillights. Prep them well, several light layers, and wet sanding and they come out great.

Might be something to look into.

Maybe it was the Rustoleum stuff?

You can tint the headlights too.

But with the weak headlights painting or tinting them could kill the lighting even more. Stock headlights that are clean look fine too.

Ya, tinting clearcoat wouldn't be hard for an automotive paint shop. Tinting them with the film would probably be easier and cheaper. Plus can be peeled off if the light output is worse then he feels comfortable with.

Iím just going to clean up my stockers. The correct way to do it is pull the headlights apart, remove all of the chrome off of the reflector, prep, and then paint. I tried baking the stock lights in the oven and it didnít do shit to the glue holding together. Seemed like I was going to destroy the headlight getting them apart. Iíll settle for nice clear stock units. WOMP WOMP WOMP

Maybe put those replacement tinted headlights in and take some drugs for your OCD?

I did black night shades and it didn’t look great on my Grand Prix, would have a paint shop spray tinted clear over them, I’ve seen some like that and they look great

Definitely interested Joe! I almost PMíed you about the alternator. Mine took a shit the other day. The reason I didnít is I wanted black not polished.

Is that Power Pipe just pipe without any plugs? I have caps on my Power Pipe. In a few spots and it drives me nuts. Iím about to send a bunch of stuff to powder coat, that tank would be getting coated if I bought it.
