I got this idea out of the blue two days ago and thought why not give it a try.

Used Paint Stripper and a Razor blade and just simply removed the paint and traced the outline of the light and this is the final product. It was either this or removing the tint completely..... I think this dosen't look to bad actually think it's pretty cool plus my hid's are about 15% brighter.

What do you guys think yes or no?






EDIT: Here is with both Low and DRL/High And Reverse lights finished. And with my headlights on.

It doesn't look terrible, but if it were my car, I'd probably take all the tint off.

Hm... I'll remove the Tint from the DRL, Side marker and also snap a few pics and see the difference. I'll also remove the tint from my Reverse lights. I'll post before and after with that also.... Update in a few hours Cool Stay Tuned Laughing

How do you know they aren't staring at it because it looks like a turd? Just saying...

If it has big wheels and it's shiny they will look. They are mostly kids that look when I pass... "Adults" hate my car cause it's loud.
